Corny Birthday Card

Ha!  I love this card!  It is simple but fun.  

Cricut Machine or access to one such as in a scrapbooking store
Cartridge - Just Because Cards
Card stock paper [yellow, light green and dark green]
Craft glue
Blank cards with envelopes (or make your own with cardstock)
Alphabet stamps
Stamp ink


Using your Cricut machine and the Just Because Cartridge cut one layer 2 corn that is 11" in your light green cardstock.  Next, cut out one layer 3 corn-s that is 11" in your dark green.  To make the corn cut out one layer 1 corn-s that is 11" in your yellow cardstock.  Glue these together to make your corn stock.  I used bought blank cardstock that is just brown kraft that worked well for this card but you can also make your own card out of cardstock.  My card was approximately 5"x7".  For the inside I cut out some of the light green card stock that was a little bit smaller then my card and glued this to the inside.   Using the Cricut, cut out one 7" word corn in yellow.  Arrange this on the light green background and glue it.  With your alphabet stamps and ink stamp out "This card might be" and "but we just wanted to say, Happy Birthday" between your glued, Corny.
