Nothing says Happy Birthday like…

… a piece of paper folded in half!

The Birthday Wit stamp set really suits my sense of humour.  It’s nice to make some less ‘gushy’ cards for a little change.  I love using handmade cards to remind people how much I care for them, especially on their birthday, but some people prefer something a little more straightforward.

You can’t get more straight to the point that this sentiment, lol.

My card base is Pool Party card measuring 29 x 10.5 cm, scored at 14.5cm to create a portrait tent fold card.  The next layer is Lemon Lime Twist card measuring 14 x 10 cm.  I then added some of the photo realistic Picture Perfect Party designer series paper measuring 13.5 x 9.5 cm.

I stamped the sentiment in Pool Party ink on Whisper White card and then cut it out using the largest Stitched Shapes circle die.  It’s ok that it cuts off some of the HAPPY BIRTHDAY.

I stamped it again using Lemon Lime Twist ink and just cut out the HAPPY BIRTHDAY part to stick on top of the circle die cut.

I added a bow using Lemon Lime Twist mini striped ribbon.  I used mini glue dots to stick the bow to the card.  Finally I added some Tutti Frutti sequins.
