Super Dad Birthday Card

This month, I have three "boy" birthdays - my dad, my father-in-law and my son.  So, I have a been busy making boy themed catds.  OK, you guys may know I'm a sucker for anything super-hero-ish and when I caught sight of this cute card in the Cricut Craft Room, I knew I had to cut it.  It costs $1.99 and you could use it for both Father's Day and a birthday.  Click HERE to see more about the Super Dad Card.

Here is the inside of the card.  The "You're Out of this World" stamp is from Papertrey Ink (one of those cute $5 sets) and the "Happy Birthday" is from My Creative Time.

I decided to make a matching envelope using some Close to My Heart superhero comic book paper I had in my stash.  I used an envelope from the Cricut Just Because Cards cartridge and sized it to fit the card in the Cricut Craft Room perfectly .


Don't forget we are giving away a Cricut Cupcake Wrappers cartridge this week!  Perfect for all your party needs!
How can you win?
1) Leave a comment below answering this question: What is your favorite Halloween candy?  Mine used to be those mini Snickers.  But, I've been off sugar for 5 months and so I won't be indulging this year!
2) Subscribe or follow the blog.

That's it!  Winner will be announced on Sunday, September 13, 2012 and has two weeks to claim prize.  We ship worldwide so all are welcome to enter.  Allow 4-6 weeks to receive prize.

Love the card. My favorite Halloween candy is Indian Corn. It's like Candy Corn only has chocolate instead of marshmallow creme. Halloween is the only time of the year you can find it.

Cool card! My favorite Halloween candy is "candy corn". Wow you have been off sugar for five months, thats great, I wish I could do that. Thanks for the giveaway!

Joelene said...

Cool card! My favorite Halloween candy is a hard decision. Of course candy corn or harvest mix with the pumpkins, but I also remember from childhood always making home made popcorn balls for Halloween. Yummy, lets have both.

Thanks for the giveaway! My fingers are crossed.
