Designer’s Tip: The Center Step Die-Cut Card and fun, party-themed Happy Days paper coordinate perfectly with this darling circus-inspired birthday card.
- Card Front: Use the pattern from the Center Step Die-Cut Card packaging and trace onto the top right side of the Happy Days banner border paper. Place a length of Teal Jewel Border Dazzles™ along the bottom of the paper and glue to the card front. Trace and cut out 2 Happy Days yellow circle paper strips and glue to the card side steps.
- Tie a length of blue twine around the elephant head die-cut, and tie a bow. Foam tape the head to the elephant body, and foam tape the party hat die-cut to the head. Foam tape the tassel to the hat. Glue the elephant body to the card front as shown.
- Glue and foam tape the party decoration die-cuts to the card side steps. Embellish party decorations, hat tassel and top of banner pole with Teal Jewel Dazzles™.
- Inside: Trace the Center Step Die-Cut Card pattern onto Happy Days yellow circle paper and glue to the inside of the card. Mat 6½”x1¼” blue paper, from the Happy Days banner paper, on white cardstock, leaving 1/8” borders. Glue across the card center. Foam tape the “I’m Sorry I Forgot…” label to the border and embellish with Teal Jewel Dazzles™ as shown.
