Boo-lated Birthday Card, but wait there's more :D

 Hello everyone, today is my day to be a guest designer at the Bug Bytes!

 Ok, so it's a scary tree card, nice but...

Inside there is writing with a Cricut Marker... nice but wait... there's more.
It's barely visible in the picture (it glows brighter in real life). The moon and tree face glow in the dark! :D I used the Art Deco Glow in the Dark paint on the base, I think four layers would be even better, this is with two.

Using the E2 is vastly improved for using with markers, but I haven't figured out if I can move the blade and what to do when writing inside a card? Gypsy to the rescue :D. Select the card you want and arrange it on the Gypsy. Then make another layer and copy the card to that and line it up exactly. Hide the score marks and add the sentiment where you want it placed.

Using the marker layer, put the marker in the machine and hit the cut button.

After the drawing is complete, return to design.

Take out the marker and put in the cutting blade (and please use scrap paper lol). Then go to the cut layer.  Do not hit the load/unload paper button. Easy Peasy :D

LOL..., girlfriend I love it!!! Great card! Definitely will have to get some of that glow in the dark paint. I can just see giving my hubby a card in the dark!!! LOL!

Sorry I missed you at Pam's; story of my life lately!!! Hopefully, I'll have some peace now -- at least for a full minute!!! LOL!

Hi there!
I tried to see your work that you mentioned on my blog, but I can't find it. Can you help me to locate it, as I'd love to see it?

Hi Susan :D

First go to and sign up for the free membership.

Then go to "Kits", Birthday Surprise and the "other's using this kit" tab. You should be able to see everything the design team made with the designer's name at the bottom. I'm Ohhh Snap there too :D.

So that's what that Glow in the Dark paint is all about. You are SO clever! And I admit, I love your Cricut, too.
