#161 Celebrations - Happy Birthday Card

Hi everyone!  I am back with my last entry into the challenges for National Scrapbooking Day on the Cricut Circle Blog!  The final challenge was to create a project using an older cartridge along with a newer cartridge.  I chose to create a birthday card featuring Celebrations, an older cartridge, and This & That, a newer Creative Memories cartridge.

From Celebrations, I cut "Happy" and "Birthday" at 2.34", and the scalloped square at 5.6"

From This & That, I cut the piece of cake at 3".

I embossed the scalloped square with the cupcake Cuttlebug folder from the Once Upon a Princess companion set.  I then ran a Versamark ink pad over the paper and embossed it with Hibiscus Rose Orange embossing powder by Lindy's Stamp Gang.  Very shimmery!

Here is a closer look:
The glitter paper I used for "Happy Birthday" is POW by American Crafts.  It has a really smooth surface and cuts like butter in the Cricut!  LOVE it!

Hope you like it!
