Gift Shaped Birthday Card - Sweet Treats Cricut Cartridge

Hi!  I am going to be working on some simple cards for the next few weeks.  I am hosting a card making party at my home as part of a fund raiser for my kids school.  I did this last year and it was really fun!  I will come up with ten different card designs and everyone that comes will make two of each card.  This is the first one, I think I will do it in two different color combinations for the party.

I made this card by cutting the gift out using the card feature on the Sweet Treats Cricut Cartridge.  I inked all of the edges in black just to add some definition.  The card is cut at 5".  The tag is also from the Sweet Treats cartridge and is cut at 2 1/4".  There are tons of cute tags on this cartridge!  I embossed the top layer of the gift with my Cuttlebug and used some Icicle Stickles on the bow.  I attached the tag using some bakers twine.

I posted links to this card on the following blogs:
