Tuesday Treats 1-11-11 Wicked Birthday Card

Hello everyone, this is Jenny from Jenny K Scrappin Addict at (I really could not think of anything too creative with the name so this works - hahaha!!). I am new here to post at Tuesday Treats and was just so excited and yet nervous. The ladies that post here are just so talented and I have learned so much so I wanted to share my craftiness as well. 

My project is a Birthday Card for my daughter. The last couple of years for her Birthday we have decided to see a Broadway Show and go to the Cheesecake Factory for dinner (YUMMO!!!). We are going to see Wicked this year and I wanted to make a card to match the poster for the show.

I laid this all out on my gypsy and there are really not that many cuts. Here is a picture of my gypsy girl:

See - just 5 cuts. I will provide the complete recipe below. 

And here is my finished card:

I used 4 different cricut cartridges here:
Base Camp for the lettering (cut at 1 inch with the layer)
Sentimentals for the hand (cut at 1 and I also removed the envelope)
Mini Monsters for the hat (cut once at 4.35 and then flipped and cut again)
Forever Young for the faces. I used the Emblem feature and hit the circle on my gypsy so that only the faces were cut. (cut at 3 once and then flipped and cut again) For this cut I removed a flip on the front of the hair and the neck.

On the lettering and my background paper I used the Distressed Cuttlebug folder. The background paper is from the K & Co. Seasonal paper pack. The green and black paper are from TPC and the white glitter paper is DCWV. I used Black Diamond stickles on the black hat. The feathering on the hats are boas that I cut down and then glued (I saw Emma on My Creative Time do this on a CUTE card she had made previously and knew I would be doing this at some time). I used the Martha Stewart Drippy goo punch and some black ribbon from my stash.

Well I hope you enjoy my card - my daughter will actually be getting this today 1-11-11 as it is her Birthday! Happy Birthday Amanda I love you!!

Blessings, Jenny
