Crafty Today: Happy Birthday Card #1

Happy Birthday!

Happy Birthday!

Creating gender neutral birthday cards can be quite challenging.  But, sometimes the best designs come out of necessity.  You need the following tools and supplies to create this card:

Fold the teal cardstock so it is a finished size of 4.25″x5.5″.  In Microsoft Word, create the happy birthday! in Mission Script in 30pt type and make four to a page.  Trim the white cardstock with greeting to 5.25″x 4″ and adhere to the teal card.  Punch a 1.25″ circle in green cardstock, a 1.5″ circle in teal cardstock and a 2″ circle in purple cardstock.  Run each circle through the Cuttlebug machine to emboss.  Adhere the circles to the white cardstock.

The beauty of this card is that you can change the cardstock to whatever color combination you prefer or punch out patterned paper instead of the embossed cardstock.  The possibilities are endless.

Happy card making!
