Crafty Today: Birthday Card #6

A colorful gift for you!

A colorful gift for you!

A dear friend pinned this card on Pinterest and I wanted to make my own version.  You need the following tools and supplies to create this card:

  • Cardstock
  • Patterned paper
  • Cuttlebug machine and embossing folder
  • Colored twine
  • adhesive and foam tape

Fold the white cardstock so it is a finished size of 4.25″x5.5″ and cut another piece of white cardstock to 5.25″x 4″.  Cut five pieces of patterned paper to 5/8″ x 3 1/4″.  Adhere to a scrap piece of white cardstock and trim to fit.  Run the white cardstock through the Cuttlebug machine to emboss.  Create and print out happy birthday on a scrap piece of white cardstock.  Trim up to give it a banner feel.  Adhere the gift box to the embossed cardstock and adhere the banner to the gift with foam tape.  Tie the colored twine in a bow and adhere to the top of the gift.

Such a fun, festive card and a great way to use those scraps.  I love the possibilities!

Happy card making!
