This is so adorable. Thank you for posting it. I used your idea and directions to make invitations for my daughter's birthday party.

I just got my new cricut and gypsy and was googling for some card ideas with the 3 cartridges it came with. I came across this wonderful card and it looked simple enough for my first try and I have the George. It turned out adorable! Thank you very much for the directions on how to make it. I was able to make 12 of them for Operation Write Home!

Thank you, too, for sharing this! I've just purchased a cricut expression for my adult daughter who has mild developmental disabilities. I was looking for simpler card designs JUST LIKE THIS for her to work with. This is terrific!
