Since I am in the Birthday mood...

Here is another Birthday Card that I made back in May and never posted. I absolutely love this card because I got to use one of my favorite paper companies- October Afternoon! On this card I actually combined two different lines from October Afternoon; there is some Fly a Kite and Thrift Shop. (Both great lines) Other than that I used blue smoothie and valentine Core'dinations paper for some solids. The front of the card is so fun because I mounted the little pin wheel in a way that it actually spins! To me the "fun" aspect just screams Birthday!!

My favorite part of this card is the inside. On the occasions where I get someone a gift card, I love to have a fun/cute way to give it. So for this card I made a little pop-up envelope to hold the gift card. It gives that "wow" factor and is so easy to do! Hope you like it. :)

If you want more details on the card like Cricut Cartridges used, I will post that below the pictures. Hope you

If you want to make your own envelope like this one below, you can find this on the Just Because Cricut Cartridge pg. 68

To make this card you will need the Just Because, Create a Critter, and Sweet Treats Cricut Cartridge. The main card base, the card base liner on the inside, the envelope for the pop up gift card inside, and the main envelope can all be cut from Just Because.
Everything to make the pin wheel and the Happy Birthday phrase found on the inside can be found on the Create a Critter cartridge. Lastly, the little tag on front that is stamped with enjoy can be found on the Sweet Treats Cartridge. If you need specific details like sizing and page numbers... feel free to write me anytime and I will be more than happy to send you the information.
