Here's a girly B-day card I made for my good friend and neighbor. It was inspired by a card I saw on the Cricut mb over a year ago and I sure wish I remembered who made it. I'm pretty sure she was from "across the pond" and she used actual reading glasses and made a box for the card. I even bought reading glasses to duplicate her card and never got around to it (besides I can't find the glasses. LOL) so when I found this pair on the new Paisely cartridge I was elated! We're at that age when "readers" are a must and she's quite the fashionista as well so I thought she'd get a kick out of a flamboyant pair in zebra print (I sketched and colored the print with permanent markers) with a hot pink chain and rhinestones. (We'd never be caught DEAD with them around our neck! LOL) The welded sentimment is from Beyond Birthdays. It's available as a free .cut file with detailed instructions, including how to curl that ribbon, at Custom Crops so if you're interested click HERE.
For some reason I forgot to take a dimensional shot before I sent my article to Custom Crops, but since I still have the card, here it is.
Inside I did a computer generated sentiment and layered on another pair of glasses. I'm pretty sure with the color scheme and zebra print she'll get a real kick out of it. Hope you do too, and if you have a chance, I'd love it if you could leave a comment at CC too. Thanks so much! xxD
