Creating Birthday Cards with my Cricut

I don't know if it was because of my birthday last week or not, but I have been making all sort of Birthday Cards with my Cricut (via my Gypsy). I especially love cards with clever sayings and love the challenge of trying to figure out ways to make those fun sayings come to life. Here's a few of my favorites I made this past week.

Not Over the Hill, Reaching Your Peak
This fun card was created with the Country Life cartridge and some fun Echo Park papers (I would love to stock up on that yummy cloud paper for sure).

You're Not Old, You're Ripe
I combined the new For the Record collection by Echo Park, with some fuzzy paper I've had forever and my Just Because Cards cartridge. 
 
 

Happy Belated Birthday....from Your Slower Friend
I'm always forgetting birthdays so this sentiment was perfect. My son actually told me about this idea after shopping for a my birthday card and he thought it was so cool that I recreated it from what he told me. This card was created with some fun Bella Blvd & Echo Park papers and my new Four Legged Friends cartridge.


Journey Around the Sun
I couldn't pass up this fun sentiment and with the help of my Simply Charmed cartridge and the bright American Crafts papers to create this fun card.
 

I love creating birthday cards with my Cricut! And I hope you enjoyed my take on these fun cards. I still have a few more in the works that I hope to post later this week
