This was made as a fun alternative to a B-day card. It's fun, simple, and mostly uses the "Sweet Treats" Cricut Cartridge. I rarely recommend anything, but this is one of the most delicious cartridges that I have purchased. Hmm, enjoy!

Using My Mind’s Eye Totally Girl paper cut a 5 x 41/4” piece of paper and vertically tear ¼” off 5” end. Around the edges of the paper use Barn Door ink pad to create rustic look. Attach 6” ribbon to 41/4” vertical end of paper, using ATG gun, so distance off ribbon at top measures ½” and bottom measures ¼”. Stick My Mind’s Eye paper to the card at a slant.
