Happy Birthday Card Cricut Nifty Fifties
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.
Cricut Birthday Card Nifty Fifties
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!
Happy Birthday Sis
As you can see from her photo, the card matched her glasses. Happy Birthday Sis!
I Cricut graduation – Wild Card cartridge
I am happy to say that I spent a wonderful weekend celebrating the graduation of my nephew from Ohio University in Athens, Oh. In honor of his graduation, I made this card. The font is “Kate’s ABC’s”. I went into the Cricut Craft Room to weld the letters. They are 1.5 inches tall with a (-4) for the spacing. The card is 8 1/2″ x 11″ Forest Foliage cardstock by Stampin’ Up. (I think it is now retired) I folded the cardstock in half to make a 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ card. I cut the Whisper White 5″ x 8″ and inked the edges with black ink. The graduation cap is cut at 4″ from the “Wild Card” cartridge. I wanted to make the tassel show up, so I got out my white embroidery floss. I cut a piece of cardstock 2 1/2″ to wrap my floss around.
I wrapped it a few times and then I cut a small piece and tied it at the top
Next, I slid the floss off the card and tied it about 1/4″ down from the top.
Now, take your scissors and cut the bottom of the floss to form the tassel.
Thread the top strings of the tassel through the hole in the graduation cap and secure it with Scotch Tape.
I then cut 2 small sections of the green cardstock and placed them over the tape and on the bottom of the inside of the cap. I cut “Craig’s” name out of the program and taped it to the green cardstock.
Now, place a glue dot on the cap to keep the tassel in place.
This is the inside of the card. I used a Stampin’ Up punch and cut the diploma from the “Wild Card” cartridge. I used a small envelope for the “gift” of cash.
