St. Patrick's Day - 1st Birthday Elmo card

So you might think this is just a St. Patrick's Day card...well you're wrong!  This is actually a birthday card for a sweet little girl who is turning 1 on St. Patrick's Day!  Earlier in the year when I first saw this Cricut cartridge I just knew I had to have it and I got it as apart of my Valentine gifts...YAY ME!!!  I just love all the Sesame Street characters and so does my 2 year old daughter.  I know I will get many uses from this cartridge and this is just the beginning.

I used these items to create this card:
  • Design Studio
  • Elmo & Friends Holiday Cricut cartridge - Elmo
  • Life's a Party Cricut cartridge - "Happy Birthday"
  • Hannah Montana Cricut cartridge - 1st
  • Martha Stewart flocking powder (ladybug) - Elmo
  • brads
  • "celebrate" wooden stamp (Michael's $1.00 bin)
  • ric rac
  • foam squares - just to pop up Elmo

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
I had some challenges with this card but all in all I am pleased with it.  I know the little girl who is turning 1 will never know what challenges I had.  It was a fun card to make and who can resist Elmo!  Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed my St. Patrick's Day - 1st Birthday Elmo card!  


  1. Hi Carol love Elmo love this card! Thank you so very much for joining my Challenge. The green shamrock again red Elmo is so stricking! karen

  2. What a cute card! Perfect for a March b-day for a child. Then again, my hubby is a March b-day and he would love it too! lol!

    Love the St. Patty colors of your blog. Erin go braugh!


  3. Cute card Carol, I think that Elmo holding a shamrock is a great idea for a St Patrick Day birthday. I also agree that 1 is a big birthday even though the little ones never remember them (that's what scrapbooks are for).
