Happy Birthday to You Card

By LeNae Gerig


For the Card Front:

  1. Place the card with the fold at the top. Cover the card front with stitched stripes paper with the stripes running vertically. Cut a 3"x2 1/2" piece of yellow gingham paper, then tear it diagonally and add one half to the bottom right corner of the card front.
  2. Use a yellow star brad to attach a "wish" Dress-Up over the gingham corner. Glue the "love", "laugh" and "smile" ribbon fragments at varying angles down the right side of the card front.
  3. Glue a 5" length of gingham ribbon down the left side of the card front. Glue the "Happy Birthday to You" tag at an angle, overlapping the ribbon. Tie an 8" length of gingham ribbon into a shoestring bow and use a Glue Dot™ to secure the bow over the top of the tag. Attach a flower artwork tile at an angle to the right of the tag with foam tape. Use a red star brad to attach a candle Dress-Up overlapping the bottom left edge of the tag.

For the Card Inside:

  1. Cover the card inside with yellow gingham paper with the rick rack border running along the top edge. Glue the "birthday wishes" word fragment overlapping the right side of the rick rack border. Use foam tape to attach a flower artwork tile centered below the word fragment.

A tip from LeNae: Brad Dress-Ups™ are easy to attach to your projects with the adorable brads that come with every pack. Just place the Dress-Up on your project and use a pencil to lightly mark the holes where the brads will go. Remove the Dress-Up and punch or poke a hole over each pencil mark, then just replace the Dress-Up and add the brads to the pre-punched holes! For extra reinforcement (especially on projects like handmade cards that will be handled frequently), try adding one or two Glue Dots™ under the Dress-Up™ to make sure it stays in place on the project.
