Theme Day Thursday - Birthday

Welcome back for another Theme Day Thursday over at My Cricut Craft Room
My Cricut Craft Room
Today's theme was BIRTHDAY!!  And what perfect timing, my youngest stepson had a birthday yesterday.  My husband and I met when his youngest boy and my boy were 10 years old and they played on the same soccer team.  That was 16 1/2 years ago!  So my stepson just turned 27 and my son will be 27 in July.  Man they are getting so old, which means we are getting really old...lol.
So here is a sneak peak of my card:

For my project today, I used 3 cricut cartridges.  I made a card and a gift card holder.

Here is a list of supplies I used and cartridges:

Cricut Cuts
All Mixed Up - numbers cut at 1"
Art Philosophy - card base and frame cut at 9" x 4"
Celebrations - candles and all layers 2.75"
present 2.5"
happy 2"

DCWV Dots, Stripes and Plaids Paperstack
DCWV The Colorful Life Paperstack
My Creative Time - Gift Card Holder Die & Gift Card Sentiments Stamp Set
Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Brushed Courderoy
Cuttlebug Embossing Folders
Stickles in Orange Peel

Here is a picture of the card:

And here is a close up of the gift card:


I will be entering this card in the challenge over at Birthday Sundaes this week!!

I hoped you enjoyed my card and gift card today and please stop by My Cricut Craft Room
