B is for birthday

I was really stuck on what to do for my Dads birthday card. I had many versions of this card in my head such as b is for baby but in the end decided to make it as a birthday card. I like the fact that it is plain not too fussy. Sorry that the photos aren't that good. I really like making shaped cards.

I used Design studio and Plantin schoolbook. Base card is the letter B in shadow 7 inches selected twice flipped and welded. The then I cut the B out again with and without shadow and adhered to the base card. I used the computer to make the sentiment, added ribbon and a brad.

Toy story Lotso

This cartridge certainly arrived just in time for me to make family birthday cards. Here is the one I made for my youngest granddaughter. When we were out shopping I picked up some pink card, she suddenly shouted out "oh thats nice grandma" at the top of her voice so that was it, it just had to used for her card. Thanks to the ladies who left me lovely comments on my last post on Cricut MB.

Toy story I used design studio to create the base card. I duplicated flipped and welded the bear 7 inches, then hid the contours and cut. I did not use shadow. I then cut the bear added the layers and attached to the base card.
Celebrations balloons cut at 6.5 inches.

Mr Potato Head

This card is for my eldest son who will be 30+*! this week. He has a collection of  different character Potato heads so this is just the right card for him. He might not think so, but then he thinks card making is sad. But that's ok because I don't like fishing. The last toy story post generated alot of kind comments on the Cricut message board, thanks for all your messages.

Toy story I created the base card using design studio 12 x 24 mat Potato head with shadow at 6 inches flipped and welded. Then cut the character without shadow and mounted onto folded card.
The sentiment was computer generated.
