Popcorn Squirrel Birthday Card – Silhouette Cameo and Cricut Together

A bright and cheerful birthday card as requested by my friend for a member of her staff.

The popcorn box and the popcorn kernels are both from the Silhouette online store.  Despite my large Cricut library, I didn’t have a single popcorn cut.  I also picked up the pennant bunting at the Silhouette store.  There are multiple layers of popcorn kernels.  The “birthday cake” kernel was sized larger than the ones in the box.  I used the print and cut feature and filled an 8.5″ x 11″ page with various sizes of kernels – what a great capability.    I made the “HB2U” circle die cut using the Silhouette Designer Studio software with my printer and cut it with the Silhouette Cameo.

The squirrel and the birthday candle are from the Birthday Bash cartridge.  The squirrel was cut at 2.75″ tall and the candle was cut at 1.75″ tall.

The inside of the card is a popup using the Spinning Platform mechanism from Sizzix.  The sentiment is stamped and an extra frame of patterned papers.  Spellbinders nestabilities were used to cut the sentiment and the frame.  The “flying” kernels were attached via acetate strips to the sentiment.

The card measures 6 inches square to make sure that all the staff has room to sign it.

Happy Independence Day!
