Teen Birthday Card

This month's Circle Magazine Challenge is to use the Circle exclusive cart Out of Character (one full image cut including layers)  to create a project. Since my youngest daughter's birthday is around the corner and she views being called a Diva as a positive, I decided to incorporate the Diva cut from Out of Character into a birthday card for her.

The teen carrying the cake is cut from the Paper Dolls Teen Scene cart.  The dolls do not have mouths, so I stamped a Peach Keen face stamp onto a separate piece of paper and hand cut the lips form the image for the doll.  I also added a little three dimension nose inspired by the noses on some of the projects done by the very talented Nadia on her With Glittering Eyes blog.


The cake itself is a piece of confetti with white enamel accents added for the icing.  Since this card was for a teen girl, I was liberal with the rhinestones and glitter.

Cricut Expression & Cricut CraftRoom Application
