Paper cupcake with candle

My first Cricut project

I made my first card! I’m so proud of myself. I was a little nervous to get started but after watching this video to get reacquainted with the machine I was ready to roll.

Here’s the card and envelope.

Oh Happy Day card with cupcake and candle and envelope with candles pasted on.

And here’s what I learned.

  1. It’s a good idea to read all of the project instructions before you start.
  2. Make sure you know the appropriate paper sizes. I had to go back to the store to get some 12 x 12 cardstock because I only had 8.5 x 11.
  3. You can skip to any of the steps in the project if you need to cut something again. I made a second envelope because I didn’t think the glued-on candles would survive a trip through the mail.
  4. Bend the mat away from the paper when removing to avoid tearing and curling.

Now it’s time to make some planner stickers! I’ll keep you informed.
