I needed to make my father in law an 80th birthday card so jumped into Cricut design space and created an 80th birthday card. I grabbed a font that I liked. (I don't even remember which font). Then I changed the letter space to put the 8 and 0 touching, so close I think it went into the negative. Then I copied and pasted and flipped the 80 over and overlapped it a little. I added a couple of score lines and made it as big as would fit on a cricut mat (piece of cardstock). I then duplicated the whole 80 again and then cut it in half and deleted the parts I didn't need and recoloured the blue section for the front of the card. Then to get the yellow section I used the new offset feature in cricut design space and went into the negative to get an inside shape. This is an awesome new feature that makes things SOooo much easier to create additional layers on your project. Then I added the Lets Party banner from the . Let's party was a bit of a cheeky thing to write but we were all heading over to Rottnest (An island off the coast of Western Australia that has the only colony of cute Australian mammals called Quokka's), for a whole weekend so I thought "let's party" was kind of appropriate. The photo of him opening the card was taken on the Rottnest Ferry (the boat that takes people to the island, its a 45 minute ride).
In Cricut Design Space I have coloured the card the colours I wanted for this challenge but you can create this card in any colour you wish. I have included the design space file FREE for you to download (see below). I think you will need to own the Flower Market digital collection (or old cartridge linked) to access this free project but if you don't have it you can buy it from your CTMH consultant/Maker or if you are in Australia you can use the link above to purchase the collection from my website http://www.vandra.closetomyheart.com.au/.
*Note: This is the very first time I've shared a Cricut Design Space Project file so please let me know if you have any issues downloading it.

I LOVE this You are Enough special for National Scrapbooking Month. The colours of the papers including Rose Gold are so stunning but hard to photograph.
To make my card I pulled out the . The pattern called for 1.25 inch blocks in so I added a slightly smaller block of the glacier and rose gold hexagon paper from the .
Did the stamping in Black ink on white daisy cardstock and matted again on Sangria cardstock. Finished off the card with the stickers of the branches from the sticker sheet and to make them stick up a little I put on half of the branch. The Congratulations stamp is an old retired stamp set and I used thin 3D foam tape to have a bit of dimension on the title.
