Cricut Twinkle Toes "Love You" Birds Card


OK, so this is probably my favorite card I've made this year (ha, ha - only 6 days in...)!  This A2 sized card (4-1/4" x 5-1/2") came together in a snap once I got my sizing figured out.

A tip for the newbies:  Use the Fit to Length feature key on your Expression or Create to get just the right size you need on a project.  I used that to determine what size to cut the label shape behind the birds.

Speaking of label shapes, can you believe this one came from the Cricut Twinkle Toes Lite cartridge?  Be sure to look at your cartridges carefully - there are lots of labels and shapes on there that are parts of other images.  This one was supposed to say "Tiny Dancer", if you cut all the layers.


I cut the label shape ("tinydncr") from Twinkle Toes at 3-1/4".  Then, I ran it through the Cuttlebug using the Textile Texture embossing folder.

The love birds ("loveb") are from the Cricut Holiday Cakes cartridge and cut at 1-1/2".  Remember that the Cake cartridges work in any of the machines and you can use the images to cut paper.  Silver gems and glittered big brads are from Hobby Lobby.

I added a red button on my bow, then tied it with Martha Stewart baker's twine and added my sentiment from Papertrey Ink.  Button and ribbon by Papertrey Ink.

A finishing touch on the inside and we're done!  Paper was by Core'dinations and Basic Grey's Bittersweet line.
