Simple Yet Sweet Birthday Card

Sue (my upline) on her website displayed the birthday cards she had received. This is a copy of one of them. I thought it was a very sweet card. Simple and quick to make too! I LOVE how Autumn punched the three flowers out on the white card stock and you can see the color behind them. And the brads in the center are a nice touch.

The words are from the Stampin' Up! "Sincere Salutations" set. I have used that set more times then I can count. I've always loved that font and the set contained all the sayings you need!

The colors used here are Rich Razzleberry and Whisper White. The ink is Rich Razzleberry. And the ribbon is Rich Razzleberry as well.

To make this card you will need a half sheet of whisper white card stock folded in half. Cut a piece of Rich Razzleberry card stock 4-1/4" x 3". Cut a piece of white card stock 4" x 2-7/8". I don't know if these are the same measurements Autumn used but these worked for me.

You will also need the Trio Flower punch, 3 silver tone brads and 5 Dimensionals.

Cut your card stock. Punch your flowers. Mine are punched about 7/8" in. Wrap ribbon around the white piece and tape on the back. Stamp words. Set this piece on top of the Rich Razzleberry piece and mark where the brads will go. Punch a hole for each brad using your paper piercing tool. Put the brads on and then tape this piece down on the white card base. Using the Dimensionals set the top piece in place. You are done. That is all there is to this card. How simple, huh? Now I have to go make another one. Good thing I just wrote all the dimensions down! This card is for my sister and I thought I should have one on display here. My stampers like to find simple, quick and cute cards to make. This fits into all three of those categories!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
