Happy Birthday Card with Video

Mornin' hens!  I hope you all had a GREAT weekend!  Mine was a bit busy but a lot of fun!  While I was out and about, I noticed this event calendar in the dining area of Chick-fil-A.  It had letters hanging from the top edge of the frame, almost as if they were suspended in air.  Hmmmmm I thought, I can do that!  So as soon I got home, I attempted to duplicate the look on my Silhouette Cameo.  It was super simple to do.  I just typed the word BIRTHDAY in Abadi MT Condensed Extra Bold font and then drew a long rectangle above it.  Then I moved the word BIRTHDAY so the top of the letters just did touch the bottom edge of the rectangle. I selected both the word BIRTHDAY and the rectangle and clicked WELD.  Presto!  All one piece!  Then it was as simple as clicking CUT!  The rest of the card came together fairly easy.  Here's a video on how I put it all together and a little Copic coloring too.

That's it for me today.  I hope you enjoyed the video and I'll see ya back in the hen house real soon!  {{{hen hugs}}}
