Celebrate Aligator CardWith summer here my kids seem to have Birthday parties every week and buying cards for kids just seem like a huge waste of money to me. But I have found that if I give them a homemade Cricut card with a fun animal or with something they are interested in then they at least look at them a little bit longer. So I'm always looking for new and fun ideas for Birthday cards. I really don't like to make a ton of one design and give them all out. It would probably be easier to do them that way but I don't feel they are as personal or fun. I like to make one at a time for a specific person. That's why I love this cartridge.

These Birthday Bash Cricut cartridge ideas are very fun and easy and it has fun animals on it. So this is definitely one of my go-to Cricut cartridges especially when I need to make a quick card for kids.

So Easy to Make

The overall size of this card is 8" x 3.5" (perfect for an alligator) he is made from patterned cardstock cut out at 2.5" (which makes him about 8.25" long) with my Cricut machine. The banner is cut out at .75". Use pop dots to give it a little bit more dimension.

That's it, this card is super easy to make so when you're in a pinch. If you need to make a quick Birthday card, check out the Birthday Bash Cricut cartridge. Share your Birthday cards with me! I would love to see some of the fun Birthday cards you have made, post them on the Paper Crafting Fanatic's page so we can inspire each other.

Remember that Cricut tools will make your project go more smoothly.

Happy creating!
