I’ve been working on a couple little projects over this past week, but I am just waiting to get some supplies to finish them up so I can share. However, I did have everything I needed at home today to make a card with my craft cutter for a 1st birthday party we are going to tomorrow. I’ve had the thing since December when both my mom and husband each got me one. That’s not the first time that’s happened either. One year I got sewing machines from my mom and mother-in-law. Both times it was not something I had particularly been wanting, but glad I got. Anyway, today is the first day I’ve actually used it to make something.
The party is cowboy themed, but I decided to just go with a generic birthday theme and made a cake card. I used a double-sided card stock. I put a cut out of a 1 candle in the same pattern for the inside to give it some interest, but keep it from distracting from when we write in it since the pattern is busy enough. I use blocked letters to spell out the name on the front. Nothing fancy, but I think it came out nice. It took a few minutes, but it saves me about $3-$4 on a store-bought card and it’s a little more personal.
