Birthday card

I made this card by cutting out the design printed on a Foof-a-la scrapbook paper. This paper is so pretty, I had to go back and buy more to add to my stockpile of paper!

Happy Birthday and cake clipart were printed from the computer.  Background card stock is Bazzil Basics Loganberry Pie.  Ribbon is by American Crafts, gemstones by Studio18 and Tree of Life finding by Fresh.

This is a very large card, 7"x7".


Birthday Card using 'Tons of Love' image by Nina J May

This didn't get submitted for the challenge because I didn't follow the instructions to use buttons or red ribbon according to the weekly contest rules.  I used Glimmer Mist for the first time - OH NO, I could become addicted!  It came out really cute. Although, the Glimmer Mist did not show up on the scanned image.  The oval insert was sprayed with Glimmer Mist before attaching it behind the oval cutout. The juvenile themed paper is from a Miss Elizabeth's scrapbook set; the oval was pre-cut.

I printed the original inside verse on the computer.  Punched a small hole in each corner of the insert, threaded through with embroidery floss and used pop dots to attach to the card.  Punched small holes in each corner of the background cardstock, threaded the DMC embroidery floss through each hole, used a small piece of tape on the back side to hold in place and inserted small white round brads by the PaperStudio in each corner.  Then attached the whole thing to the inside of the card using Scrapbook Adhesives E-Z Runner permanent adhesive.
