Hippo -- I mean, Happy -- Birthday!
My dear friend Toby's cute little daughter just turned one, and this card is for her. The color scheme came from the gift bag it was going into. I love it when a card turns out just as cute as it was in your head! Despite the long list of materials, this one actually came together really quickly.
Hippo: Cricut Zooballoo cartridge, cut at 2"
Party hat: Celebrations cartridge, cut at 1 1/2"
Flower: EK Success punch
Scallop square: Mini-monograms cartridge, cut at 3 1/4"
Tag: Celebrations cartridge, cut at 1 1/2" (1 with tag feature + foundation tag as background) The "1" candle shape is filled with stickles, too
Embossing: Cuttlebug "Swiss Dots" folder, sanded to bring out the pattern
Safety pin: Making Memories (I think)
