Happy Birthday Card - Giveaway Day!

Read through the directions to see my special giveaway today!
We're still on the first page in the Art Philosophy booklet for the Cricut machine.  Today I'm going to use both the number one on the "circle 1" key with the font key, and the number one with the holes in it on the "circle 1" key and the font layer key.  We're using Tommy paper today and you need to cut out the number one out of white daisy paper using "circle 1" plus the font key.   Then, cut the number one layer out of honey cardstock using the "circle 1" key with the font layer key (also at 2 inches).  This is a first birthday card but, of course, you can use another page and set of keys for other numbers.
Cut outdoor denim cardstock 5 1/2 by 4 1/4 inches.  Cut a piece of the striped paper 5 1/4 by 2 inches.  Cut the yellow pattern paper (looks like linen) 5 1/4 by 1 3/4 inches.  Cut the yellow checked pattern paper 5 1/4 by 1/2 inch.  Cut a piece of outdoor denim cardstock 1 1/2 by 1 1/2 inches.  Cut a piece of honey cardstock 1 3/4 by 1 3/4 inches.  Distress all pieces with outdoor denim ink.
Attach the striped, checked and linen paper in order in the center of the card leaving an eighth of an inch all around the outside as a border.

Layer the yellow "1" over the white "1" and glue to the blue square.  Attach with 3-d foam tape to the honey cardstock square and then glue down to the upper right of your card as shown.  If you hate when the pop dots and 3-d foam tape get stuck to your scissors, you might want to try our new non-stick scissors.   I'm giving away a pair of these scissors to one of the persons who order off my website this week (expires on Saturday the 17th).  Drawing will take place on Sunday the 18th.  ALSO, EVERYONE WHO ORDERS FROM MY WEBSITE THIS MONTH WILL BE PUT INTO  A DRAWING FOR AN ART PHILOSOPHY CARTRIDGE!!   HERE'S MY WEBSITE.

Using the Joyful Birthday stamp set, stamp Happy Birthday of your choice in outdoor denim ink directly onto the yellow linen paper on the lower left.

Add some of our new blue epoxy bubbles on the lower right of the card, so pretty!   Attach whole card front to the card base which you've cut out of white paper 8 1/2 by 5 1/2 inches. 

Here's how to change the mat size for your Cricut.
