2nd Birthday Card

My daughter was invited to her friend's son's 2nd birthday party today, and she asked me to make the card. Here is what I came up with:

All cardstock is Bazzill.  The yellow glitter star paper on the front is from The Paper Studio Birthday Extravaganza paper pack.  The snake and baloon were cut from the Create A Critter Cricut cartridge at 3.25 inches high, and the number 2 was cut from the Birthday Bash Cricut cartridge at 1.12 inches high.  The sentiment was stamped using a Stampin' Up! stamp.

I used my Gypsy to lay everything out on my mat to cut, and here is the screen shot.  Does anyone know how to get a good photo of a Gypsy screen shot?

Here is how all the cardstock was placed on my mat.


  1. Cute card. Especially like the way you made use of layout on your mat. Found that it depends on the camera and most often using what is called 'Landscape' mode on the camera with no flash will give you a good photo.

  2. Thanks for the tip. I'll try landscape the next time.

  3. Hi Brenda,
    Super cool and fun card. You did fantastic job. TFS! ~Shen
