Birdie Birthday Card

Helllllllooooo Everyone.
Oh how I have missed my little blog. I still dont have my computer up and running.  It has been a nightmare trying to post on my blog. It is time to buy another computer since mine is truly dead.. Problem is my car also decided it needed a new head gasket. So between the two disasters I have been very busy and very poor. But today I have a post ready to go. I am hoping to get back to making some videos very soon.

My job at Joann's is keeping me busy too. I am trying to teach the new Expression 2 machine for Joann's, it is not my favorite Cricut but I'm trying to be positive. I still haven't warmed up to the E2 100% but I'm liking it better than I even thought I would!

Ok ..enough about me and lets look at this 5x7 card I made for a friends birthday. I cut out a rectangle from the middle of the card ( app. 3x4) I then used my much loved K and Co die cuts along the edge of the rectangle. I then cut a piece of yellow vellum to cover the opening. I glued the vellum on the inside  front of the card. I stamped the Happy Birthday on the inside so that you could see it through the vellum. I wish I had another pic of the front of the card showing you how well you can see the sentiment on the inside through the vellum.
This is an easy card to make due to the beautiful die cuts.

Thanks for stopping by. If you came from the CAD blog THANK YOU for coming by my blog. If you haven't been to the CAD blog be sure and stop by. Today I am the designer there but we have a different card everyday. Great ideas  can be found there.   http://cardadayblog.blogspot.com/
