Guest at Tuesday Treats Today - WICKED Birthday Card

 I am a new guest poster at Tuesday Treats today and was just so excited and yet nervous. The ladies that post there are just so talented and I have learned so much so I wanted to share my craftiness as well. 

My project is a Birthday Card for my daughter. The last couple of years for her Birthday we have decided to see a Broadway Show and go to the Cheesecake Factory for dinner (YUMMO!!!). We are going to see Wicked this year and I wanted to make a card to match the poster for the show.

I laid this all out on my gypsy and there are really not that many cuts. Here is a picture of my gypsy girl:

See just 5 cuts - easy peasy!
And here is my daughters birthday card:

I used 4 different cricut cartridges here:
Base Camp for the lettering (cut at 1 inch with the layer)
Sentimentals for the hand (cut at 1 and I also removed the envelope)
Mini Monsters for the hat (cut once at 4.35 and then flipped and cut again)
Forever Young for the faces. I used the Emblem feature and hit the circle on my gypsy so that only the faces were cut. (cut at 3 once and then flipped and cut again) For this cut I removed a flip on the front of the hair and the neck.

On the lettering and my background paper I used the Distressed Cuttlebug folder. The background paper is from the K & Co. Seasonal paper pack. The green and black paper are from TPC and the white glitter paper is DCWV. I used Black Diamond stickles on the black hat. The feathering on the hats are boas that I cut down and then glued (I saw Emma on My Creative Time do this on a CUTE card she had made previously and knew I would be doing this at some time). I used the Martha Stewart Drippy goo punch and some black ribbon from my stash.

Well I hope you enjoy my card - my daughter will actually be getting this today 1-11-11 as it is her Birthday! Happy Birthday Amanda I love you!!

Blessings, Jenny

  7. Jenny, could I pay you to make this card for my Boss' 50th birthday? She is going to be in NYC, so we bought her a ticket to the Musical and this card would be perfect!
