Easy to Make Happy Birthday Fairy Card

Updated on November 24, 2012

Handmade Card Created with a Cricut machine

The second card in the five card set of Birthday Cards I created again feature a cute bird with a theme. The Birthday Fairy Bird is a special touch on this homemade Birthday card I created with my Cricut personal cutting machine.

The cardstock I used for the Fairy Bird is a heavier weight in solid colors. For the background I chose a polka-dotted light weight piece of cardstock. I find that the background pieces work better when using a lighter weight of cardstock.

Stampin'Up! is my favorite brand of stamping products. For this card I used the phrase "The World got a Present the day you were Born" from Stampin'Up!'s Happiest Birthday collection.

Fairy Bird Birthday Card How-Tos

Cut a heavy weight piece of cardstock to a 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" size then fold on the longer edge for a finished card measuring 5 1/2" x 4 1/4". Use the Cricut paper folding tool for the best results.

Cut a light weight piece of cardstock to a 5 1/4" x 4" size. Use a patterned piece of cardstock for the background of this design.

For the "The World got a Present Stamp" image you will want to cut out three ovals. Use a light color for the smaller on which the image will be stamped. Cut each one bigger than the first.

Cut one <Fairy>, page 72, size 3", using the Shadow and Base Keyboard Key. This will cut out the background shape of the bird. I used White cardstock.

Cut one <Fairy>, page 72, size 3", using the Base Keyboard Key. This will cut out the body w/wings shape of the bird. I used Green cardstock.

Cut one <Fairy-s>, page 72, size 3" using the Layer 2, Shift, and Base Keyboard key. This will cut out the Skirt shape. I used Pink cardstock.

Cut one <Fairy>, page 72, size 3" using the Layer 1 and Base Keyboard key. This will cut out the Wing shape. I used Peach cardstock.

Cut one <Fairy-s>, page 72, size 3" using the Shift, Layer 1, and Base Keyboard key. This will cut out the Wand, Beak, and Crown shapes. I used Yellow cardstock.

Adhering

Adhere the Green Bird/Wing cutout to the larger White cutout.

Adhere the Light Green body cutout to the Dark Green cutout; then adhere the Purple Wings on top.

Adhere the Yellow Crown, Beak, and Want to the appropriate areas.

Adhere the three ovals together, large to small.
