I can't stop crafting with Cosmo Cricket and made a retro girl birthday card

Is there a fashionista in your life that's about to celebrate a birthday? This card is for her! Cosmo Cricket's Upcycle theme set turns the clocks back in time with a funky and retro style.

"Retro Girl" Eco-friendly Birthday Card


Craft Glue Dots®
FSC-certified cardstock (@ the Office by Walmart)
Cosmo Cricket Upcycle paper, stickers
Cosmo Cricket Tiny Type letter stickers
small square punch
large circle punch

Here's how I made the card:

1. Trim and fold the cardstock to fit an envelope.

2. Punch eight squares and one circle out of the Cosmo Cricket paper. 

3. Cut a rectangle around a woman's silhouette (found on a notecard in the Upcycle theme set).

4. Adhere the circle with Craft Glue Dots® and add a Cosmo Cricket sticker across the top of the card.

5. Use Craft Glue Dots® to attach the squares and rectangle to the card in the pattern shown.

6. Create a "Happy Birthday" title using Cosmo Cricket's Tiny Type letter stickers and place an extra word sticker below the bottom right square.
