Personalized Baby Girl Birthday Card

Personalized Baby Girl Birthday Card

One of my colleagues had a baby girl last year and she will be turning one next week. Since she asked me to put together a personalized card to commemorate her first birthday, I decided to use the Cricut Create a Critter cartridge and went with the hippo cut. I made a large card so I cut the hippo at 3" and used the shadow feature as well. I embossed the white layer using the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder and adhered the hippo onto the shadow using pop dots from the dollar store. The flowers are also from the Create a Critter cartridge and can be found on the hedgehog page. The sizes range from 2" to .5" in half inch increments. I inked the edges using Studio G ink and added some pink adhesive jewels I bought at the dollar store. The letters and number are from the Cricut Storybook cartridge cut at 1.5" using the Shorty/Holes feature. The ribbon was purchased at Michaels as were the flower brads. Pink and brown combos have become a favourite of mine lately and I like how the one kind of blends in with the flowers so as not to detract from the other focal points.
