Happy Birthday Girlfriend – Sharing The Card I Made

Here is one more card I made recently and I am just now getting around to posting.  If you didn’t notice from the other posts, I’ve been pretty much using the same materials of paper and such…and I’m continuing that with this Happy Birthday Girlfriend card. 🙂

This card is so very simple to make, anyone can do it in a few easy steps! 🙂

  • Melon Mambo Stampin’ Up Cardstock
  • Caroline Gavin K&Company Pattern Paper
  • Fiskars Border Punch
  • My Pink Stamper Stamps Friends and Family Stamp Set
  • White Pigment Stamp Pad
  • Purple Ribbon

Start with a 8 1/2″ by 5 1/2″ piece of carstock, fold it in half and from one side of that car, use paper trimmer to cut off 2″.

Along the edge that you cut off the 2″ punch out your border in desired design.

Now take your patterned paper, I went ahead and made it 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″ so that it would fill the whole front of the card.  Run glue right at the edge of the border you punched and then another glue line at the very top of the patterned cardstock.

Line the Patterned paper on the inside of the card and press together firmly.  It should look like this when standing up 🙂

Tie some ribbon that you like around the card and right above the punched edge…I really like the way the ribbon accents the punch.

Line up two of the stamps on a stamp block – I used a grid stamp block to get them pretty even 🙂

Stamp on your sentiment in your favorite color (I like white with this) and there you have it!  How easy and cute is that??

I really find that when you have paper that you love, you can create very simplistic designs in cards or even layouts – sorta let the paper speak for itself and enjoy it! 🙂

Hope you have just a wonderful day 🙂

  4. Hi Megan,
    I love all your work.
    As a new card maker, I just don’t know what o do with the inside of cards .I don’t like my handwriting.
    I would love to hear other’s suggestions.

    I needed some fresh ideas to make a bunch of cards, and this really helped. Thanks.

  11. Note to Vicki, I use a Hallmark Card DVD program and print on whatever color paper I want that matches the front. I select one that pertains to my subject, print it out and then cut it to the size I need using decorative sissors for the edges. It works but you have to practice a little to get it right. Happy card makimg, Vicki.

    Vicki- For the inside of your cards-go to the website-Scrapbooking Quotes & Phrases and print phrases on either scrapbooking paper or vellum.

  14. Oh, so simple yet elegant. Thanks for the idea.
