Blogger's Challenge - Birthday Cards!


Hi everyone! This is my last post from the beach as we are headed home today - sigh. I would live here if I could, it's one of my two favorite places on earth.

I actually made this card before I left home last week because it is the make and take project for Kathy's party tomorrow morning. So, if you are attending, you will be making this fun card!

This card design was actually from last year's convention, I think, but it's too good not to use with new stamps and paper! The card base is Riding Hood Red and the inside layer is Whisper White. The front flap is scored and folded over at 1 1/2". I used patterns from the Bella Rose Designer Series Paper on the front and the stamps are from the Wow Flowers Stamp Set.

Just one ink pad, Riding Hood Red for the stamping, and I sponged the edges of the inside layer as well. The "notch" is punched out with the 1 1/4" Circle Punch which is also what I used for the stamped circle greeting. The Kiwi Kiss circle layer is punched with the 1 3/8" Circle Punch. I adhered them together and added a Rhinestone Circle Brad for the center. The whole embellishment is popped up on dimensionals and the front flap of the card just tucks under the circles to close it.

This is really a fun layout and very easy to make. I'd love to see your creations with this style! So go stamp something this weekend and send me a link or a photo!

Happy Stamping!
