This was a pretty simple card to make.
I started off with a scrap of patterned paper I’d found in my stash. Cut it out using a scalloped circle die, then cut that in half.
Added each half (as shown) to the top and bottom of the card, then took some contrasting ribbon and extended it all the way down the card. Using double-sided tape, I tucked each end underneath the ‘topper’, then added the whole thing onto a contrasting base card.
Next I stamped “Happy Birthday” – from Inspired by Stamping (Masculine Tags) – onto some matching yellow card, then cut it out. That was then layered onto a square of purple – another contrasting colour.
The greeting was then popped up using dimensionals.
Last but not least, I added a tiny bow in the same ribbon I used earlier.
Here’s what I did with the inside:
“It’s Your Day” stamp from the Stars stamp set (Gina K Designs), which I believe is now defunct.
Change the patterned paper, change the greeting, ribbons etc, and you have a whole new card!
Okay, that’s it. Very easy card today. I hope you have fun with this!

Very cute card Cheryl! Thank you so much for sharing this with us. Hugs, Joanna
Thanks, Marianne. This one is earmarked for the troops.
Thanks so much, Joanna!
Oh Cheryl, this is absolutely darling. I know brown isn’t normally a color associated with a small child’s card, but in this instance, it really works well, especially against that yellow. I really love the layout on this card too. Very nice.
