HOWL Happy Birthday - Twilight inspired birthday card

 So my oldest daughter is turning 11 next week and the theme for her party is from the Twilight Saga - Breaking Dawn part 1, plus she loves Taylor Lautner aka Jacob Black. And just a couple of weeks ago she handed out Twilight - Eclipse Valentines in school. I purposely bought 2 packages @ .99 each from Party City because I knew there wouldn't be enough boy appropriate valentines in 1 package, plus it came with stickers that I knew I would be able to use for other projects. That brings us here to my card.

I used these items (all on hand) to create my HOWL Happy Birthday card:
  • A Frightful Affair Cricut cartridge - HOWL
  • Fabulous Finds Cricut cartridge - heart luggage tag
  • DCWV Immortal Love - paper
  • Black and red cardstock
  • Repurposed unused extra Valentine - Taylor Lautner aka Jacob Black
  • Jacob heart stickers - on heart luggage tag and on the inside of card
  • ribbon
  • Red stickle - claw marks in the HOWL
  • Glossy Accents - HOWL
  • My Craft Spot clear stamps - Inside & Out - set 2 - Happy Birthday (front) and sentinment (inside)
  • Black ink
  • Black brad - heart luggage tag
  • Pop dots - under Jacob, HOWL and heart luggage tag
 Here you can see how everything is popped up with pop dots:

Here is the inside:
