Here is my first card:
My baby will turn 18 on November 8th.  So, I have made a couple birthday cards with him in mind.  The first is stamping November 8 repeatedly on cardstock.  I then took some scrap cardstock and used the cricut to cut out "18", squared the cutout (allowing the one to be cut off on the left side) and then used the corner rounder on each corner.  I then inked up it's your birthday from Card Chatter - Birthday stamp set.  I topped the green cardstock with a cocoa tab slider.
and a detail shot:
The second card is my favorite, because I love clear cards:
I used scrap sweet leaf 1/2" strips to make stripes over a clear cardstock cover (I used scissors to cut the shape of the card from along the strips).  I then randomly stamped 18 in three different sizes and colors on a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" piece of colonial white cardstock.  This was adhered to the back of the clear card.
I then used the cricut to cut out three different colonial white labels and one sweet leaf tag. The green tag was stamped with Happy Birthday, and Happy 18 was stamped on a scalloped square then It's your birthday was stamped along with circled numbers 1 & 8 on the fancy cut label.  The large label has pop dots on the back (which are hidden on top of the stripes and the ribbon was run through the large lable handles and the smaller labels.
Here is a detail of the stripes and labels on the clear card:
William's favorite color is green - so that is why both cards were made in this color pallet.  :)
