Birthday Card

I just love this card. I got the idea from a card in this month's Card Maker's Magazine. For this card I cut an 8 1/2" x 11" piece of lavender card stock in half and then folded in half for the card base. Next I cut a piece of white cardstock to 5 1/4" x 4 1/4" and then used a Martha Stewart Punch on the bottom edge. Then I used my Cricut Machine with the Plantin Schoolbook cartridge to make the "ric rac" piece. After adhering it to the white piece I outlined it with a silver gel pen. Then I stamped my "Happy Birthday" sentiment with a Close to My Heart stamp set with silver Martha Stewart ink. Next I covered a strip of white card stock with that shiny silver duct work tape and cut and embossed it with my Cuttlebug machine. I mounted this on a 2" x 2" piece of lavender cardstock that I had used silver Martha Stewart to ink the edges. Hope you like it!
