40 and Fabulous



Happy Friday everyone.  I want to share a birthday card with you that I made for a scrappy friends birthday.  She turned 40 and her husband gave her a beautiful surprise party and boy was she surprised.  I don't think I've ever seen anyone cry so much out of happiness.  Anyway, this card was made using the Forever Young Cricut cartridge.  I thought I would try my hand at making a pop-up card.  It was really easy and I think I'll make these more often.  I cut the lady at 4.5 inches and "fabulous" at .88.  The red cardstock is from Papertrey Ink, the black cardstock and patterned papers are from the DCWV La Creme stacks, pearls are from my stash, ribbon is seam binding from Hug Snug and I crinkled it with water.  I glimmer misted the card front to give it a little sparkle.  I hope you like it.

Have a safe holiday weekend and keep on crafting.
