Birthday Card


Just a quick post today with a sweet little birthday card that I made recently.  Hope you like it!

1) Using Dark Chocolate cardstock (Papertrey Ink), trim card base to 4 1/4" x 8 1/2" and fold in half.
2 ) Trim a piece of yellow/brow/cream flower print paper (K&Company Wild Saffron paper pack) to 4 1/4" x 2 3/8" and adhere to card base.
3) Trim a piece of beige polka dotted paper (K&Company Wild Saffron paper pack) to 8" x 1/2".  Make three folds to create a ruffled ribbon effect near the right side of the card.  Adhere strip to card, and trim any excess from sides.
4) Create the birthday wishes scalloped circle:

  • Stamp text background using Crumb Cake Ink (Stampin' Up!) and Background Basics Text Style stamp set (Papertrey Ink).
  • Stamp polka dot background using Crushed Curry Ink (Stampin' Up!) and Background Basics Polka dot Basics stamp set (Papertrey Ink)
  • Stamp outline circle using Take Note stamp set (Papertrey Ink)
  • Stamp 'birthday wishes' sentiment using Mega Mixed Messages stamp set (Papertrey Ink)
  • Punch circle out using 1 3/4" circle punch.
  • Punch scalloped circle out of blue patterned paper (K&Company Wild Saffron paper pack) using 2" scalloped circle punch.
  • Adhere circle to scalloped circle.
  • Add pop dots to the back and adhere to card base.
  • Adhere crystal to below 'wishes' in sentiment.

Hope you have a great day!
