Please join us Under the Sea invitation

The project I have here today is an invitation for my little girl's 4th Birthday party...the theme, of course, is Little Mermaid.  Luckily a few months back I was able to purchase the Dreams Come True and Happily Ever After Cricut cartridges from for only $22.49 each!!! I know I got a major deal and when I saw it I knew I had to jump on it and I am so glad now that I did.  Not only is my little girl having a Little Mermaid birthday party she dressed up as Ariel for Halloween, so I will be getting good use of the cartridge. Plus she is much more interested in the Disney princesses than my older daughter ever was.

The invitation measures 8.5 x 5.5...I knew I was going to have to make it big because of all the little cuts for Ariel and I was right. I couldn't even use the parts to the eyes or lips...I had to use makers and pens to color them in, and that was even cutting her out at 4.25 inches. I still think she turned out beautiful though.

I used Martha Stewart glitter for Ariel's tail and a Martha Stewart corner punch from the Deco Fan punch around set for the information part of the invitation. Lastly I used Studio G foam dots behind Ariel to give the invitation some dimension.

Simple Baby Shower card

Here is just a simple baby shower card I made using the Wrap It Up Cricut cartridge card feature of the onesie. I cut the card at 5 1/4 out of the purple cardstock so that it would fit in a 5 1/2 square envelop. I then cut the inside circles from the flower pattern paper and lavender cardstock. I adhered them to the card. I used a white gel pen to just dot the outside of the card. I then stamped the inside sentiment from  My Craft Spot - Clear Stamps - Inside & Out - set #2. Lastly I tied a white ribbon around the fold in the card.
Here's a look at the inside:

This was a super simple and really quick baby shower card.
