I was recently asked to make a birthday card for a little one who is just turning one. I just love to make special cards like this! Especially for a girl since most of the cards I make for my family are for boys.
I used some birthday themed paper and embellishments I had in my stash, various Cricut cuts, and some stickers to make this card. I think it turned out pretty cute!
Thanks for stopping by today! Make someone smile! Laurie
Since Thin Cuts are 25% off this month at Close To My Heart, I’ve been making lots of cards with these awesome products. I shared several last week and today I’d like to show you one more. It’s super easy and I love that cute little fox!
This week’s Bitten by the Bug 2 challenge is Birthday Bash. I made a masculine birthday card using the Southwest Cricut cartridge for my design team project. But I also made a second card that I want to share with you today.
This card was made with older paper from Authentique, my second favorite paper company besides Close To My Heart, of course! The Cricut cut is from Birthday Bash.
I love the simplicity of this design and the colors are perfect for a guy! I added a diagonal strip of various textiles as the only embellishment and DONE!
Thanks for stopping by today! I appreciate every one of you! Laurie
We are celebrating birthdays at Bitten by the Bug 2 this week! With a husband, two sons and two grandsons, I am always needing masculine themed birthday cards. So I took advantage of this birthday theme to create a few.
This card is made from Simple Stories paper and Close To My Heart cardstock. The Cricut cut is from the Southwest cartridge. I really love how the colors are bright and cheerful, yet it still looks “grungy” and perfect for a guy!

This week at Bitten by the Bug 2 the challenge is to create a project using any cute animal Cricut cut. Well, I don’t know if there is anything cuter than a dancing alligator, do you? I needed to make a birthday card for a young girl and I think this one will be perfect! The cute little alligator came from the cartridge Twinkle Toes, one I have never used before.
I embossed the white background with a Happy Birthday embossing folder and used a stamp from Close To My Heart for the sentiment. The only embellishments needed were a few white gems, some coordinating banners and little white glitter paper.
Head over to Bitten by the Bug 2 to see the cute animal projects made by my design team sisters to get your own creative juices flowing. Then share your own projects with us at BBTB2–the world could sure use a few cute animal projects these days, don’t you think?
Hope your week is off to a wonderful start! Laurie
My dad’s birthday was last weekend and he is an avid (that’s putting it mildly!) fisherman, so of course his card had to be related to fishing. For his card I used paper from the Rustic Home Fundamentals collection along with Chocolate cardstock and ink. The stamped images are from B1535 Hooked on You. I colored the fish with watercolor pencils and added some square metallic embellishments which are now retired.
The sentiment for the inside will soon adorn the majority of my future birthday cards because I think it is awesome! It’s called One in a Million (A1201) and is only $6.95! I will get lots of use from this one, I’m sure.
