Birthday Hat card by Mary Bezdicek
Supplies used - Paper and stickers: My Minds Eye (Home); Cardstock: Bazzill and Coredinations; Ink: Versa Color (Chestnut Roan); Mist: Tattered Angels; Cricut Cartridge: Straight from the Nest; Liquid Applique: Marvy; Embellishments: Pink Paislee; Brad: Spare Parts


• For this card I used my Design Studio to weld two party hats (using the Shadow Creative Feature) together from the “Straight from the Nest" Cartridge. I cut then cut a single of the Shadow in pink and five of the hats (Creative Feature off) one in white cardstock and four from a different sheet of the My Mind's Eye paper. If any of you would like the cut file I made for this contact me at my blog.

• Layering all of the patterned paper together, I cut the hats in fourths so my lines would match and adhered them to the white base.

• I cut four of the hat pom pom and layered them to create the “fluff”. I layered the base and the pom pom on the pink Party Hat. The “fluff” was adhered by a brad. I then put this on top of the card.

• The Pink Paislee Artesian Element was sprayed with the Black Cherry Glimmer Mist and adhered over the paper seam.

• The Marvy Liquid Appliqué was applied on the hat trim and once dried I ran a heat gun over the top to create the dimension on the trim. It was then adhered to the bottom of the card.
