Birthday Fun with Create-a-Critter

My friend's lil' guy is turning one at the end of the month, and this is the card I made for him. I hope he likes it, LOL! The train, lion, balloon, and clouds are all from Create-a-Critter. The train track is from Everyday Paper Dolls. I used my Gypsy to size everything to fit by creating a 4.25 x 5.5 rectangle. I made sure all the pieces fit nicely in it (representing the card front)...and then I just deleted the rectangle before cutting. SUPER EASY! This card looks pretty simple, but it took a while because of all the white pen work I did. Here is the side view to show what's popped up.
Well I hope you're having a GREAT DAY!


p.s. the sentiment stamp is by My Pink Stamper and can be bought HERE
