Sentimental Saturday – Birthday Card & Graduation Card

Hello, Brenda here with two cards for CricutDIVA’s Sentimental Saturday. I’m showing two cards because last week there was a graduation card posted that is very similar to mine.

First, here is the birthday card I made for my son.

All cardstock is Recollections. This is an A2 card (5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″). The yellow layer is 5 1/4″ x 4″. The car is from the Groovy Times Cricut cartridge (page 49) and was cut at 2″. I used my Gypsy to lay out all the cuts on my mat, and here is a screenshot of my Gypsy and a picture of my mat:

I ended up not using the white stars for the windshield of the car, because it was so small that it didn’t cut well. Instead, I used a white gel pen to put the stars on the windshield. I used an EK Success tag punch to make the tag and the sentiment on the front and inside of the card is from the Close To My Heart Card Chatter – Birthday stamp set. I then added silver Queen & Co. pearls to the front. The yellow mat on the inside of the card measures 5″ x 3 3/4″, and the white mat measures 4 3/4″ x 3 1/2″.

Now let me show you the graduation card I made. It is a tri-shutter card, which is the first one that I’ve made.

The dark blue solid cardstock for the base is Bazzill, and the patterned paper is from the SEI Field Notes paper pack. I used the Paper Dolls Teen Scene Cricut cartridge to cut the girl graduate(page 30) at 5″. The cap was cut at 2 1/4″ using the Creative Memories This & That Cricut cartridge. The sentiment is from the TPC Studio Class Act stamp set.

I also used my Gypsy to make the cuts, and here is the screenshot of my Gypsy as well as pictures of my mat.

  1. Fantastic cards Brenda. 🙂
    The card for your son is such a great masculine card that could easily be switched to a Father’s Day card or any other kind of masculine card you might need to.
    The grad card is wonderful as well. That paper you used is fabulous.
    Thanks for sharing.
