Autumn Birthday Card

Hello Card Markers!!  Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today.
   If you came over from the CAD blog ( cardaday.blogspot.com) where I am the designer today, Thank you so much!!!!

    I'm so thrilled you took time out to come to my blog and see how I made this adorable Autumn Birthday Card. My birthday is in the fall, I'm a September baby. So I love fall colors on a  birthday card.
I found this OVER THE HILL cartridge from Cricut at JoANN.COM for just $11.99. I got a few carts from Joann's at that price last week. I love a great deal. Here in the picture it shows a belly band you can cut for the card. Since I was adding some 3D flowers I opted to omit the band. I used some brown ribbon from my stash instead.
I used 3 punches to make my foliage and flowers.
I cut the card and the gate front at 6 inches
The 4 U was not cut from this cartridge. I was disappointed to not have any fonts on this cart. I cut the 4 U from the StoryBook Cart at 2 inches.
The Happy Birthday was cut at 3 inches from OVER THE HILL cart. The top  inside iron piece is  automatically cut with the 2 front gate pieces.
There are many thing's I liked about this new cartridge. The only thing I didn't like was the absence of a font. There are several projects from this cart that look very complicated to put together. As always Cricut doesn't give the best instructions. However for 12 bucks plus shipping I was willing to take my chances, that I could get them put together.

If you have any questions on this project or anything on my blog. Please drop me an email  at  Sugarlite02@aol.com

If you haven't done so, Id like to ask you to join/follow my blog. I would love to have 150 followers on my blog before the end of the year. This summer I was turned done from design team because my blog didn't have enough followers. So I am trying to grow my blog and try again next year for some designs teams.
Thanks again for coming by.
Happy Crafting in 2012
