A Fruity Birthday!

This was a VERY fun card to make. I was going to say it had lots of pieces but as I look at the card it's not really that many. But I made 8 cards and I recall seeing lots of fruit circles in front of me!!! LOL

For this card I used the Stampin' Up! "Tart & Tangy" set. My papers include Green Galore, Whisper White, Yoyo Yellow, Only Orange. The decorative paper is from the new "Picnic" papers and I used Pumpkin grosgrain ribbon. The brads are not from Stampin' Up! I think I got them from Oriental Trading.

I cute my Green Galore card stock at 5-1/2" and folded it in half. I added a piece of white card stock on it that measured 5-3/8" x 4-1/8". I added a 2" x 5-3/8" piece of the Picnic paper on top of that. Before I taped the white piece on top of the green I added the ribbon. Then I stamped the fruits and punched them out using the 1-1/4" punch. I punched out matching colors of card stock using the 1-3/8" round punch. I added the brad and assembled the pieces. Not a whole lot to this card and it's always nice when you can pull it off!!!

Now I have a few birthday cards plus I'm going to be giving some out with the upcoming blog candy!

Thank you SO much for stopping by,

Very cute card! The more I see, the more I really want this set! Am planning on a workshop for June! Maybe doing the scratch & sniff technique!
