Quick & Simple Birthday Card

My sister-in-law’s birthday ‘snuck’ up on me so I made a quick birthday card today to get it in the mail! The Kraft card base measures 5×7. Then I added mats in orange and cream. I stamped a “D” in turquoise ink from Ink It Up! for Debbie’s initial and ran it through a Swiss Dots embossing folder. I framed this with another orange mat. Using a Uni-ball Signo white gel pen, I added some “stitching” and then embellished the card with “Special Moments” stickers I found last week at Dollar Tree. They even have little rhinestone embellishments. What a great find for $1.00!


I printed the inside message using my computer and added another 3-D sticker and some more faux stitching.


Thanks for checking it out!

    • Thanks Sophia! I found this sentiment by chance by doing a google search for “spring birthday sentiments”. It led me to this site: http://www.squidoo.com/birthdaygreetings and I looked through and found one that luckily mentioned butterflies :). It was listed under the site’s heading: Warm Expressions Especially Suited for Cards or Using In Scrapbooking … Thanks for checking out the card! 🙂
