Cheery Birthday Card

If you have minimal time, yet want to create a personal birthday card for a special friend or relative, this is the card for you.



Happy Birthday Card - Purple Flowers

For this project you will need:

- white blank card
- white, spring green and lilac colored structured cardstock
- Cuttlebug machine
- Cuttlebug embossing folder “Stylized Flowers”
- Cuttlebug mini embossing folder “Happy Birthday”
- Sizzix original die “Flower Layers 3”
- jumbo flower punch
- assorted lilac colored half beads
- jewel glue
- 3-D foam tape or 3-D foam pads
- decorative edged scissors


1. First take the larger Cuttlebug embossing folder and emboss the background pattern onto green cardstock. Use the decorative edged scissors and cut this into two pieces. The top is about 1/3 high and the bottom about 2/3 high. Adhere these two pieces to the white card like you see in the picture.
2. Then emboss the Cuttlebug “Happy Birthday” folder onto lilac colored cardstock. Cut this down to a smaller sized rectangle and adhere this piece onto white cardstock. Using your decorative edged scissors, cut out around the cardstock, creating a small border. Adhere 3-D foam tape to the backside of the message and stick it diagonally to the bottom of the card.
3. Die cut one large flower out of lilac colored cardstock and then punch out 3 smaller lilac flowers. Also punch out one green flower and adhere it to the front side of the large flower. Adhere 3-D foam tape to the backsides of each of these flowers. Glue the half beads onto the front sides of the flowers.
4. Stick the flowers to the card like you see in the picture. Finished is the card.
