For this birthday card, made with my handy Cricut Die-Cutting Machine, I had a special theme in mind. The card was for my sister and she has two of the most personable cute cats that I've ever been around. Her kitties are like a couple of "boys" and definitely live the great life!
The bigger cat boy, Herman, is a big yellow kitty and the smaller scrappy boy is named Frank. I found the perfect cutouts for the kitties and decided to use them in honor of her birthday.
One special touch I added but didn't photograph was the use of a white gel pen. I etched small dashes around the letters on the card.
Cricut Cartridge: Sweethearts
Lemon Flower Stack: Glittery cardstock from DCWV

Step by Step
Cut one <BDayHat>, pg 75, size 2" using the Word and birthday hat keyboard key for the top layer of Happy Birthday
Cut one <Kitty>, pg 45, size 3" for the larger cat and size 2" for the smaller cat, using the cat keyboard key for the top layer.
A small heart will be cutout with each Kitty cutout.
Adhere the two top layers of the cats to the card and adhere the small hearts on top of the bottom layers.
Adhere the two tiny noses to each cat.
I purchased the cutest little kitty stamp which I have been using on the back of my card creations. I used that same stamp to stamp all over the right inside of the card for a fun touch.
