Birthday Corner Pop Up Card

Front of Card
Howdy Crafters -  First, Mary of Cardz TV got me inspired to use the Cricut with her cut out balloons from the Create a Critter Cartridge - so I will be
having some creations coming out this year as I went crazy with cutting things out after I fired up the Cricut Die Cutting Machine. [Love me some Cricut images]

I also have a new card technique - at least for me - it is called a Corner Pop Up Card - the base is easy peasy lemon squeezy - once created - use your imagination for decorating - This card will fit in a size A2 envelope for mailing- click HERE for the link to see Cathy William's Christmas card and directions to make your own Corner Pop Up Card - thanks for stopping by and have a lovely week.  - Gail
