Today I want to share with you the card I made for my husband’s recent birthday. He’s not a man for a lot of fuss so I kept it clean and simple. As my old favourite Happy Birthday die has retired I used the Well Written dies instead…
I used the new 2019-2021 In Color Pretty Peacock, which is actually a bit more green that the above photo suggests – oops, should’ve checked the photo before I gave him the card, lol.
My card base is Whisper White card measuring 21 x 14.5 cm, scored and folded on the long side at 10.5 cm to create a landscape tent fold card. I then added a layer of Pretty Peacock card that measures 10 x 14 cm and a piece of the In Color designer series paper that measures 9.5 x 13.5 cm.
I cut another piece of Pretty Peacock card that measures 10 x 6.5 cm and die cut the words happy, birthday, the little heart and the exclamation mark from Whisper White card. I replace the dot on the exclamation mark with the heart – I thought it was cute!
Obviously you could make up a few of these cards to have on hand, with any of the In Colors, Neutrals, Brights, Subtles, or Regals as they all come in the same patterned paper designs.
