I hope that everyone had a wonderful Mother’s Day weekend. I spend mine in Sandestin on the Panhandle of Florida with my older daughter, son~in~law, and 2 granddaughters. The weather was gorgeous, the sand was soft and clean (The sand there is awesome because it never gets hot.), and the water was clear. I shared with you the cards I made for the girls to give their mom and now I want to share with you 1 more card creation. Here’s how to make a birthday card with a Cricut Exlore Air.
My older granddaughter turns 6 on Wednesday, but before I returned home, I gave her this birthday card that I made before I came to visit. (You might remember the happy birthday banner that I made for her a couple of weeks ago.) Here is the inspiration photo from the Cricut Design Space.
How to Make a Birthday Card with a Cricut Explore Air
I thought she would like the pop~up feature of this card design. To achieve this look, you have to use your Cricut scorer accessory. After the card is cut, scored and all the excess pieces removed, folding the scored lines creates the pop~up effect.
Then I glued white and yellow scrap pieces of paper behind the candles.
This card did not come with a envelop, so I used the same process I used to create envelops for the Mother’s Day cards I made. Because I wanted to write her name on the envelop and I had never done that step before, I followed the tutorial from . I didn’t quite get the letters centered on the envelop, but I was happy with my first writing with my Cricut Explore Air.
Here’s the finished card, signed and ready to give.
I can’t wait to see if she likes it. Not only was it fun to make, I learned some new skills to use with my Cricut Explore Air, and if she loves the card. my efforts were well worth it.
