Birthday card using Cricut Explore

I wanted to make a birthday card that is trendy, girlie, and colorful. I used the Cricut Explore to cut all of the pieces. In Design Space, I created the background by manipulating a chevron design from the Boho Graphics Iron On cartridge and used the feather from the Southwest cartridge. The Happy Birthday label was written by the Explore. I am very pleased with the results and continue to be thrilled by the cuts made by the Explore. I feel as though the Explore and Design Space help me to complete projects more quickly. They are so easy to use that my time is spent more on planning, than on execution. The machine is no longer what slows me down. I LOVE this!

The Design Space file I used to create this card is HERE. It has been my experience that you need to save shared files before you can cut them. Simply go the file, save it your library, load your paper, and  cut! :)
