Hello Crafty Friends! I'm sharing a cute monster birthday card today using my Sizzix eclips machine , ecal software, & Designs on Cloud 9's Monster Birthday file set. My daughter will be turning 7 and I thought this would make a cute card for her. Did you know, monsters don't only have to be for boys?! Change the colors of the monsters or add a bow and presto... instant girl monster! I chose this particular monster because I loved how it has it's arms stretched WIDE open like giving a big hug. And I just adore those cute little bucky teeth!
I was asked if the sentiment was a part of a cut file and sorry to say that it is not. I made the sentiment from a font I already owned on my compuer. The font I used is called Independence and it is available to download for free if you don't already have it.
I just love balloons... and what better way to top it off than with twine. I'm so glad that a lot of craft companies started making baker's twine in more colors than the classic red. There's something about this silly string that just makes me happy!!
And, speaking of happy... another one of my favorite things that is guaranteed to put a smile on my face...cupcakes! I just had to include cupcakes all over. I just couldn't stop at a couple of cupcakes! Nope, I had to plaster cupcakes all over the background!! I embossed it with the 5x7 cupcake folder from Cuttlebug's Once Upon a Princess set.
I hope this card puts a bigger smile on my daughter's face than it did on mine!
Happy Crafting Friends!
