Birthday Card


Lily (my oldest Great Granddaughter) needed a birthday card for her Daddy. So, when she was visiting us on Monday we made a card. I did the outside and she decorated the inside. I can't believe I didn't get a picture of what she did on the inside of the card. It was so cute!

I cut a piece of cream color card stock and scored it with my Scor-Pal to make a 5.5x5.5 card. I cut a piece of textured beige 1/4 inch less and used my ticket punch on the corners for interest. Then I did the same with the striped paper. I found this beautiful beige paisley in my stash that blended nicely with the other colors. I cut the heart with my Cricut using Plaintin Schoolbook cartridge. I pierced the heart with my piercing tool all around the outside edge. I then stamped the words Happy Birthday using my Veramark stamp pad and embossed with with Ranger's Fine Embossing Gold powder. I cut another heart out of the textured beige and popped up the paisley with some Dimensionals.

The Spellbinders Pieceabiltiies Ric Rack die was used to cut the border and I used the holes on the die to make the pierced design. I stamped the beige ribbon with my little words stamp and
adhered it with Scor-Pal tape.

I sure hope the angle the card is sitting is the reason it looks crooked. I can't check it out, because Lily took the card home with her on Monday. I didn't look at the picture until this morning, so I sure hope it is the photography and not the card. I had 3 little ones helping me make the card, so anything is possible. But, we made memories and that is the most important thing!!!!

A fabulous card for your great-granddaughter's dad Joan. He's going to love it, especially because it was made by the two of you! The colors are perfect for a masculine card.

My granddaughters are with us celebrating New Year's and we made lots of Valentine cards today! I love making cards and scrapbooking with them and your great-granddaughter's looks wonderful and I'm sure her Dad will love it - but not as much as the memory you have with helping her! Happy New Year!
