It was my turn to choose the challenge for Bitten by the Bug 2 this week and as I was searching around for a bomb-diggity idea that was non-Halloween and non-Autumn related, I discovered that it is Beer and Pizza Day!! It will also soon be the birthday of my beer and pizza loving husband, so BOOM, the challenge was decided!!
I used several Cricut cartridges as I designed this birthday card in Design Space–St. Patrick’s Day (beer), Elegant Edges (background) and Phrases (speech balloon).
I used some older Simple Stories patterned paper from my stash along with Close To My Heart cardstock. On the front panel, I made a collage of lots of CTMH birthday stamps. I stamped them in tone on tone ink, then heat embossed with clear embossing powder to give a subtle textured finish.
I decorated the inside of the card with matching shapes as a focal point for the sentiment.
Here is the Design Space file if you would like to make this card yourself. You do need to own the cartridges I used or subscribe to Cricut Access in order to cut the files. Enjoy!!
