Birthday Girl

The paper on the cover of the Fall/Winter Idea Book is called Avonlea, and I decided to play with it today.


Avonlea is one of three paper packets that contains exclusive colors that can only be purchased within the paper packet.  For this card, I used the Avonlea Teal print.  This is one of the lovely card base envelopes from the Cricut Artiste cartridge.  Yep, this is an envelope!  I decorated it as a card because it really is nice for holding a gift card.  The tiara is part of the envelope diecut, and in order to make it look like a real tiara I covered it with silver glitz gel.  I also used the Cricut Artiste cartridge to diecut "birthday girl."  The ribbon is our beautiful Slate Satin  - don't you love the subtle polka dots?  A button and a couple of hat pins finished off this card perfectly!
