Birthday Cards

Happy Sunday everyone.  My boyfriends' son, Sean turns 21 today so I made a few cards to give to him. I started with embossing the background with a cuttlebug folder, I cannot remember the name of it but it is the one with cattails and a bird .. Sean loves dogs so I used Everyday Paper dolls cricut cartridge for the dog, cut him out at 4 1/4 in dark brown and then again in light brown.  Cut the head off the light brown dog and put it on an action wobble and attatched his collar.  I use the collar to put the action wobble in motion - so so cute.  Just holding the card the head shakes a little like he is so excited to see him!!!  LOL.  Inside of the card, I like to make it a money holder.  I cut the dog house from the same Cricut cartridge at 4" and adhered it down on just the sides and bottom, leaving the top open to slip in the  money.  I think Sean will smile when he opens this card.
Hope everyone likes it.

This next card is just a simple one, again I used a Happy Birthday cuttlebug folder, and cut the numbers and letters from the Plantin Schoolbook Cricut cartridge.  I like the clean and simple look of this one.
