21st Birthday Card

Hi Everyone, I made another 21st Birthday Card. I used Pack Your Bags for the drink and Velum for the glass, I cut 2 pieces and put the pink paper and half the straw inside between the 2 pieces of velum so they look like they are on the inside of the glass.
 I used purple foil paper from Walmart and adhered it to purple metallic paper and then put it through the Cuttlebug with the swirls folder. I show it all in the 1st video below.
 I made the rosette by just cutting 1.5" x 12" glitter paper and used an edge punch and then scored every 1/4" I cut the 21 from Cricut Alphabet and then cover in glitter. I show completely in the second video below.
Check out the videos, the first one shows the embossing and drink.

The second one continues the card showing the rosette, 21, and the stamping.

Materials Used:
Cricut Expression 2 Machine/ Cricut Craft Room

Cuttlebug, Swirls Folder
Martha Stewart scoring board
edge punch
Foil paper from Walmart, Metallic paper from Recollections Vellum,

Merci/Thank You

This card was created to send to a special person who sent me a Rak.
I used French Manor Cricut cartridge for the Eiffel Tower at 4" I cut out 3 Eiffle Towers black, silver and pink, and the black one  I clicked Hide Contour to use as a shadow, I placed that down flat on card base. I cut out 2 of the word Merci  also from the cartridge under phrases and is cut out at 1.75"  I cut this out in pink and black. Applied the pink Merci flat on top of black Eiffel Tower. I then added pop up squares to the pink Eiffel Tower and added Pop up squares to the outsides of the black merci and put it over the pink Eiffel Tower. I offset the top layers because they were all cut at same size and not really shadows.
Below is a close up, you can see the embossing from the Cuttlebug and the rhinestones.

Below is the inside of the card. I put the silver Eiffel Tower and placed the inside of the pink Eiffel Tower inside the silver one for more color. And then placed pink paper on the right side so I can write a message.
