Nephew's Birthday Card

My Cricut has been sitting on my desk since this summer, unloved, so I dusted her off and actually made something!  I had seen a very cute card posted by Wendy Weixler and wanted to do something similar.  I didn't want to exactly CASE her card, so I made sure I didn't look at hers while making mine.  Mine fits in one of the SU large envelopes (that I wish they still sold) - a little bit bigger than the standard greeting card.  It's funny, I ended up adding the scallop circle sentiment like Wendy did, but didn't remember that she'd done that on her card until I looked at hers after finishing mine.  I broke out my SU! cloud template and sponged in the sky using Bashful Blue ink.  Really like how the card turned out.


I made this card to give to my nephew who is turning 11.  I hope he likes it.  I think I need to invest in a sports-themed cartridge to give me more options for male cards... we'll see if Joann's has their great Black Friday deal ($27) on them again this year so I can add to my collection!
