13th Birthday Card

Birthday cards for boys are always so hard for me. I like to make things with sparkle and bling, and boys/men don't usually like cards like that. 

Here is a 13th Birthday card I made for a friend of our family.  I used a brightly striped paper for the background, and then cut the number 13 to look like birthday candles. 


There are actually 2 Cricut cartridges that have a number candle cut like this, and here is how you can find them . . . go to MyCutSearch.com and type in

3 candle

and the site will show you a preview of the cartridge handbook pages that have a candle in the shape of a number 3 on them.  Or you can click HERE.

Okay, back to the card . . .




I finished it off with a smaller blue piece of paper that I embossed with a random Happy Birthday pattern.  Simple . . . but just right for a 13 year old boy.
