Birthday Chick card

May is turning out to be a delightful month for card-making. In addition to Mother’s Day cards for my mom and mother-in-law, we have three children’s birthdays, a brunch, and a garden party to attend. (And that’s just what’s on the calendar so far, plus the 5 thank-you cards and gifts for teachers.) The creative juices get flowing just thinking about it!

This is a card I made for my daughter’s friend who had her 9th birthday party today. The little girl really likes purple, so I tried to incorporate that as much as possible.

The card and matching envelope are the “Circle Card” from the Cricut Wild Card Cartridge. Both are cut at 4 inches. The card stock is from the primary colors, double-sided stack by Momenta. I did a reverse cut for the envelop so that the inside of the envelope and its liner coordinates with the outside of the card. The liner paper is from a retired pack by Creative Memories (CM). (I tried to track down the name, but failed. Anyone know it?)
The bird is from the Cricut Create a Critter cartridge and is cut at 2.25 inches. The black base card stock is CM, and the yellow and orange are scraps I had left from the Momenta stack. I used Star Dust Stickles to add some bling. The orange part of the flower is one of the layers for the bird. The coordinating base is from the “Friendship” shape-maker from CM. The large flower is made from the two-in-one Flower and the 1.5-inch Circle shape-makers, also CM. The bling on the flower came with a dollar stamp I bought at Michael’s a long time ago. The “for you” and “friend” stamps were also purchased at Michael’s, but I can’t remember the manufacturer. The red ink is by Ink It Up.

Hope you enjoy it.
