Happy Birthday Boy

I'm thrilled to be posting this project for Exploring Cricut.

The story for this card starts with the fact that I have 5 nephews from age 2 to age 9. That means I always need 5 of everything and all boy related... and birthdays are starting up again. Five sets of boy cards can be a challenge. Here is what I came up with for my youngest. I wanted to use plenty of blue and primary colors... (a touch of pink never hurt a boy). I used "boy" themed sentiment paper (scraps) and and added the blue dot border from The Paper Studio, Basics stack. Then, I cut the banner from the Cricut Birthday Bash cartridge and dusted the banner with glitter. I recreated the bird to place over the sentiment (mat in blue) and added the orange dimensional balloon (stash) to finish it up.

Challenges Entered:
Fussy and Fancy: Birthdays (F, 2W)
Crafty Creations: Birthday (W, 2W)


  1. This is really cute! Your nephew is going to love his card!

  2. Really like the banner with the bird on it-it's just so cute! Great colors, too!

  3. I have all boys and have learned you have to squeeze in some pink here and there too! So cute-he will love this. I love this cut on Birthday Bash too-one of my faces.

  4. Perfect birthday card. Thanks for joining us at Crafty Creations.

  5. Such a cute card - love those sweet little birds. Thanks for joining in the Fussy & Fancy Birthdays Challenge.

    Hugs, Vannessa
