See below for tutorial...
I chose hues of purple because thats my daughters favorite color. I got out my Cricut and cut out the "25" using purple cardstock in "shadow" number mode at 5 1/4" for the border and 5" for the floral pattern in the regular number mode. I went through several cartridges before I found just the right number font that also had a shadow for the border. So, I recommend getting out your scrap paper and practice cutting to help you find just the right one. Because I have a pile of rejects. LOL
Using the 5" Xyron sticker machine I adhered the two together and adhered to card.
Last but not least, add a couple of flower embellishments, a gem, and pearl to finish off the front. Adhere with glue dots so they won't fall off. The purple flower was already glittery, but you could use stickles glitter glue too for some sparkle. Simple, but pretty and elegant!
Sorry I forgot to get a picture of the inside, but it read: Happy Birthday,
the more the candles the bigger the wish!
I hope you get out your embossing folders or machines and see what you can create! Happy Crafting! ~Kim
