For Online Card Class Day 1: Faux Die Cut Birthday Card

I used my Cricut to cut balloons on the white cardstock panel and adhered the panel (minus the balloons) onto a portrait-style A2 size card.  The colored balloons were also cut with the Cricut using Above Rubies Studio Paper Layerz paper.  Stars and sentiment are from Simon Says Stamp, inks are Memento Tuxedo Black, Stampabilities (yellow), Color Box (green), and Peacock Feathers.  Balloons' strings were stamped with a balloon stamp (from Walmart).

Thank you card for a ballerina in a local recital.  Second card is the inside view. 

Thank you card

I used the Wild Card Cricut Cartridge for this card ("father" image, which cut the square in the center).  I cut the card from white cardstock and the liner from purple paper (although it looks more like blue in the picture) bought at Hobby Lobby.  The embossing was done with my Cuttlebug and embossing borders.  I stamped a butterfly with versamark ink onto the purple square (cut with the liner) and used gold embossing powder.  Flowers' centers are gold stickles dots.  I can't remember what stamp set the sentiment came from, but it says "Gratitude is a memory of the heart".  The envelope was also made with the Wild Card Cricut Cartridge ("father" image), and I put a stamped and embossed butterfly on the back.
