Birthday Card for a Young Boy

I made this birthday card from two of my most-used Cricut cartridges.  The monkey is from the Cricut cartridge Create a Critter 2 and the bear balloon is from the original Create a Critter cartridge.  I used button-shaped brads on the monkey's shirt and baker's twine for the balloon string. Since the card was for a boy, I didn't want to add too much bling, but I though cutting the balloon from glitter paper would add a little extra sparkle for a very special young man who brightens up my life.

Do you have a Cricut cartridge you find yourself using over and over again?  I would love to hear what your favorites are!


  1. This card made me smile! So cute!! I tend to use the same cartridges over and over, too. I probably use the Paper Doll cartridges most of all.

    1. I love the Paper Doll cartridges, too. They have so many great images!
