Super Star & Chillin Birthday Card

My daughters Emily is going to a birthday party this weekend and she wanted me to make her a Birthday Card for her friend Drew, so this is what I came up with.  I love the little dog, isn't he sooo sweet.  This card I made with my Cricut Expression and the cartridge that I used was the Paisley Cartridge. I love love this cartridge, as you will see because the next card I made was also with the Paisley Cartridge.

My daughter friend Drew is crazy about Monkeys, so that is how I came up with this card.  This cards I create with the Design Studio.  I also use Paisley, Home Deco, and Plantin SchoolBook. With the Design Studio you really get to mix and match your cardridge.

How I Made The Enveope Tag With The Cricut

Here are some pictures of how I made the tag in the design studio.  Each item that I used to create the envelope and the tag has it own page.  I find that this help when you are in viewing mode so that you can see the items that your will  be cutting, this way the items that your are cutting are not grouped together.  It also helps when you are ready to place your paper on the mate. 
Here are picture of how I create the envelope, and tag using the design studio.

I place everything together on the mat in Design Studio, this way you make changes before you cut your pieces for your project.   

See how all your items look when you place each item on a separate page.

Envelope Tag Made With The Cricut

This Envelope and Tag I made with the Tag, Bags, and More cardridge.  The two are not together on the cartridge, so with a little measuring and the Design Studio, this is what I came up with.  I am really happy with the way it turn out.  The flower that I've place on the front of the tag I made myself with ribbon.  It reminds me of a prima flower.

My Take on Prima Flowers

I went to Micheals the other day, and I saw these beautiful flowers made by Prima...  I went home and make these flowers that look like the Prima flowers but didn't cost a lot to make.

This picture is a group picture of a couple other flowers that I made.
