Birthday Cards

Hello all! My dad requested a couple of birthday cards for two of his friends.

The first request was for one with the US Marine Corps Emblem.

Here is my take:

Size: 4 7/8 X 4 7/8

Stand and Salute Cricut Cartridge
DoodleType Cricut Cartridge
Core'Dinations: Scarlet, Marine Blue, Scattered Straw
Stampin' Up: Whisper White, Basic Black
Stampin' Up Ink: Not Quite Navy
Sentiment: My Pink Stamper, Birthday Crazy
Adhesive: Zig 2-way glue pen, Tombow Mono Adhesive (Permanent), Scotch ATG
Other: Ribbon, Jo Ann

Circle Layers
Scarlet: 3.50
Marine Blue: 4.50
Scattered Straw: 4.60

Gypsy Measurements
Eagle: 1.32w X 1.43h
Anchor/Globe: 2.17w X 2.09h
USMC (Doodletype) 1.0h

There is a sentiment stamped on the inside that says "Birthday Wishes"

The second card was for a card featuring a boat.

Size: 5.5 X 4.25

Going Places Cricut Cartridge
Patterned Paper: Stripes (DCWV); Remainder (My Mind's Eye Everyday Flair Stack)
Stampin' Up: Whisper White, So Saffron
Stampin' Up Ink: Bashful Blue
Stampin' Up Punch: Scallop Border
Sentiment: My Pink Stamper, Birthday Crazy
Adhesive: Tombow Mono Adhesive (Permanent), Scotch ATG

Layer 1: 5 3/8 X 4 1/8
Layer 2: 5 3/8 X 1 3/4

On the inside of this card, there is also the same sentiment "Birthday Wishes".

I hope you enjoy these cards. They had me scratching my head for a couple days. Especially on the USMC one. It's funny how it's so easy if you come up with the idea. If someone gives you the idea, sometimes it seems more complicated :)
