I just purchased the “Nifty Fifties” Cricut cartridge and I love, love, love it! The moment I saw this pair of glasses, I knew I must make a card for my younger sister, Terri. Terri always loves to make a statement with her glasses and is always searching the internet for unique frames.
This is one of the easiest cuts I have done with the Cricut. There were only three cuts. I cut the glasses out at 5″. I used a full sheet of 8 1/2 x 11 paper for the card and folded it in half. The background stripe was cut at 5 1/4 x 8 1/2 and I then rounded the corners of the paper. “Happy Birthday” was cut at 2″ using the “Wild Card” cartridge. I added rhinestone to the corners of the glasses for a little bling.
I purchased a gift card, so I made a little envelope on the inside of the card. This was found on page 81 of the “Wild Card” cartridge!
As you can see from her photo, the card matched her glasses. Happy Birthday Sis!
