Happy Birthday! Card
By Paris Dukes
For the Card Front :
- Place the card with the fold at the top. Run an 8" length each of blue grosgrain, brown grosgrain and brown sheer ribbons through the slots on the oval ribbon slide punch-out. Glue the slide toward the bottom right corner of a 5"x6 1/2" piece of teal/brown squares paper. Wrap the ribbon tails around the edges of the paper and tape them to the back, then glue the paper over the card front.
- Tie a length of brown sheer ribbon around the candle punch-out, then use foam tape to secure the candle in the center of the ribbon slide. Write, stamp or computer journal “Happy Birthday!” onto the blank fragment punch-out and add a brown mini brad to each end. Use foam tape to attach the fragment centered below the ribbon slide.
For the Card Inside:
- Glue a 1"x5" strip of teal/brown squares paper down the left side of the card inside. Add a brown mini brad to the top of the tag punch-out and glue the tag centered over the strip.
A tip from Paris: Once you've removed the punch-outs from the book of Instant Card Art, snip or sand off any perforation tabs left around the edges for a more polished look. Another tip? When journaling on the blank punch-outs, I've found that Galaxy Marker, Slick Writer, Permapaque and Gelly Roll pens work best for handwritten journaling.
