Envelope Birthday Card, Part 7 of Recent Cards

In the vein of using a Cricut image to replace a Stampin' Up product I don't have, I created this very different but nice masculine birthday card.
I started with an image from (you guessed it) Pinterest. Thanks to splitcoaststampers for the inspiration.
Petal Pocket Birthday card
My card is an gray A2 card. I added two sets of mats, using a gray/black polka dot and white. The larger white mat is 4 1/16 x 5 5/16". The larger dotted mat is 3 7/8 x 5 3/8" . The smaller white mat is 4 1/2" x 3 1/4", the smaller dotted mat is 4 5/16" by 3 1/16".  I cut the 2" envelope with the Walk in My Garden cartridge and used a Paper Studio cupcake embossing folder. To help the embossed cupcakes pop from the page a bit, I once again used some ink (silver) on a foam spouncer brush. A Studio 112 stamp added just the right sentiment to this birthday card.
Have a Cricut? Use it to improvise for the things you don't have.


  1. Wow those are really nice,. I hope I can get something like that too on the envelopes uk based store where I buy my scrap book materials. ^^
