Birthday Joy — By: Susan Cobb

Citrus colors and floral embellishments make this sweet birthday card perfect for summer! Susan created eye-catching contrast on the card with a bright yellow, lime and pink color scheme paired with rich black word fragments and black ink. She then boosted the interest on this stylish card by creating a unique matchbook closure.

Supplies:


For the Card Inside:

  1. Fold 3/4" of the bottom edge of the card inside up so it overlaps the bottom edge of the card front. Cover the flap with lime mesh paper and ink the edges. Mat the top edge of the flap on pink linen paper, trim the mat to 1/16" and ink the edges.
  2. Cover the inside of the card with pink linen paper and ink the edges. Crop the quote to a small rectangle. Mat the quote on pink linen paper, trim the mat to 1/16" and ink the edges. Mat again on yellow letters paper, trim the mat to 1/4" and ink the edges. Glue the matted quote centered on the inside of the card.
  3. Add one pink big brad centered on the flap at the bottom of the card, going through both the flap and the back of the card. Punch a 3/4" circle of yellow letters paper, ink the edges and glue over the top of the big brad. Glue the “joy” word fragment across the brad. To close the card, fold the card front down and tuck the bottom edge into the top edge of the flap.
