Birthday Sundae Cascade Card - Cricut Crazy Cool Cards SVG

Hey there from Nannyland,

I was stunned and horrified when my dear friend informed me over lunch last week that her husband's birthday was coming up in a couple of days.  We usually host a little birthday dinner for him, even though he insists he doesn't like attention on his birthday.  Yikes!  A guy card and dinner with little notice!!!  Cricut Design Space to the rescue.  

The birthday boy loves treats, especially ice cream.  I was delighted to find this fun sundae cascade card in the Crazy Cool Cards image set (#M40EFC1).  A YouTube video reminded me how to assemble a cascade card and I was off to the races.  I changed the pink ice cream to a light brown chocolate to keep it less girly, but I couldn't resist adding Nuvo drops and glitter for sparkle.  I created the sentiment tag with the Cricut basic shapes and writing features. 

I love how this "quicky" card turned out. A yummy breakfast at our favorite restaurant, a box of cookies and a promise of a birthday dinner at our house very soon saved the day. My friend is an amazing artist and, in the past, I would have been extremely intimidated to present him with a less than perfect handmade card.  But I have found that makers of every kind and level appreciate the time and effort that goes into creating something unique and personal.  When I presented the card to him, he studied all the little details and the fancy card base and appeared to be appropriately impressed.  He even came up with a cute idea to create a birdhouse using the same design.  

I hope I have inspired you to explore the Cricut library and see all the amazing card svgs available, just in case you end up creating a fast card on the fly like I did. It happens.

Thanks for visiting Nannyland.
I'll just be here blissfully creating until your next visit.
