Ayda's First Birthday Card (#2)

Last week I shared the birthday card I made for my parents to give to Ayda (my cousins daughter), and this week I will share the one I made for her.

It's quite large -- 6" square! My 6-1/2" square envelopes are coming in handy, even though they do require extra postage.  I used the 'Birthday Bash' Cricut cartridge for this card, and the patterned paper is by K&Co.

Since I was paying extra for postage anyhow, I decided to add lots of foam tape - I love the extra dimension it gives to a card.  Doodled and inked edges, some doodling with my Sakura glitter pen, and lots of Stickles make the card more festive. I added black brads for the eyes, and even those got a dab of glitter.  
While it's hard to see in this photo, the letters for AYDA were cut out with a Sizzix die and glued inside. I doodled on them as well, and the verse is a Stampin' Up stamp.

I loved making this card, and I hope that Miss Ayda has a very happy first birthday.

Thanks for stopping by today!
