The card I made for Elise's birthday was super simple.
Black, Pink, Gold Cardstock
Potpourri Basket Cricut Cartridge
Simply Sweet Cricut Cartridge
Create-A-Critter Cricut Cartridge
Score board and bone folder
Cut a piece of black card stock to 5 1/2" X 8 1/2". Using the scoreboard and bone folder, fold card in half to form a 5 1/2" X 4 1/4" card. Using the Simply Sweet cartridge, cut the words "Sweet Sixteen" from the pink at 1". Using the Potpourri Basket cartridge, cut the crown using the shift function from gold at 3". Cut a 2" "Happy Birthday" from the Create-a-Critter cartridge from the gold and a "birthday" using the shift feature from the pink.
The inspiration for this card came from the tiara and napkins we bought for the family party. The most difficult part was finding the fonts and shapes to use. Once that was done, the card was a breeze.
