Birthday Card Made using Cricut Craft Room

I spent over 2 weeks trying to figure this out on my gypsy with tons of frustration. Then, since I was on winter break from school, I had some free time to watch YouTube videos. I found some from Angiover7 who has a series of videos demonstrating so many things you can do using Cricut Craft Room.

I went back into CCR and fiddled around until I was able to color and cut this card. The cartridge I used was the Close To My Heart Art Philosophy Bundle cartridge for both the card and the font. The color was done on the Imagine using Lori's Garden Cartridge.

Now, I have to add some decorations to the card. So, Ellen's birthday was last week. She'll get it way before her next one!


  1. That's awesome! I'm glad my videos helped you. Now I'm off to check out the rest of your stuff on your blog. :)
    I've sort of been off for the holidays. I look forward to making some more videos soon. Hope you come back to check them out.

  2. I'm going to check out Angie's videos too. Thanks Carol.
