Hi! My name is Alishia and I am a KraftaholicMommy!
Today, we are working on a fun birthday card. I love celebrating birthdays, it always a great blessing to get another year older. With that extremely short introduction, let’s get to stamping.
Base is Orange measuring 6 3/4 inches by 5 1/2 inches scored at 2 1/2 inches
Light Orange measuring 2 1/2 inches by 4 1/2 inches
Orange measuring 2 3/8 inches by 4 3/8 inches
White measuring 2 1/4 inches by 4 1/4 inches
Light Orange measuring 5 1/4 inches by 4 inches
White measuring 5 inches by 3 3/4 inches

I stamped a pretty flower all over the 2 1/2 inch section of the base. It gives the front of the card a little bit of a pop. Also, I stamped that same flower on the light orange piece for the front of the card (2 1/2 inches by 4 1/2 inches).
I took another stamp that was a set of flowers and stamped them along the top and bottom of the white piece (2 1/4 inches by 4 1/4 inches) to help draw the eyes to the sentiment. While that stamp was still on my block, I stamped that same image on the bottom of the other white piece (3 3/4 inches by 5 inches). This ties the front of the card to the inside of the card. I like to have things flow nicely. I stamped another flower to that piece along the top of the card. For the center of the card, I stamped another birthday sentiment.
I used tape runner to adhere the white piece (3 3/4 inches by 5 inches) to the light orange piece (5 1/4 inches by 4 inches. I followed that with adhering that to the inside of my card.
I adhered my white piece (2 1/4 inches by 4 1/4 inches) to the orange piece (2 3/8 by 4 3/8 inches); followed by adhering those to the light orange piece (2 1/2 inches by 4 1/2 inches). I laid those three adhered pieces on my desk with the back facing up. I put my tape runner on the right half of that piece. I layered that on the front flap of my card making sure to center that using the top of my card base and the bottom as a reference. I also made sure that when I attached this piece, it was covering my sentiment on the inside of the card.
I finished this card off by putting six rhinestones on the front of the card by putting them on the buds of six of my flowers. This finished the card off with a little bit of bling. You know me and know how I love to tie the envelopes with the cards. I stamped two long stemmed flowers in the center of the envelope, leaving enough room between them to fit a name. To finish, I stamped the cluster of flower along the flap of the envelope.
This project was super easy and fun to make. This is definitely one of those cards that you can make multiple of, very quickly. When I finished this card, I thought about how nice it would be to make this again as a thank you or thinking of you card.
Which brings me to my next little tidbit. If you decide to make this card, which I hope you do, make it your own. Switch up the colors, pick other images, other sentiments. Make it however you see fit. Enjoy the process.
