Card Share: Birthdays are good for you

Just wanted to share another project I finished recently. I made this for a friend who had a big birthday (60's) over the summer. This was based off a sketch by Allison Davis over at Sketch Support (Add-On Sketch #8).

"Birthdays are Good For You"

Variation #1: I created a tiny party hat to put on the front of a birthday card. I used scraps of papers I had in my scrap bin and added them to a white piece of cardstock on the diagonal. To mimic the stitching on the sketch, I stamped some stitches in black in randomly on the hat. For the top of the hat, I used a black paper flower and a ribbon rose with a gemstone glued in the center. The bottom of the hat was embellished with a scrap piece of black cardstock that had already been punched in a loop border. The party hat was adhered to my card with foam squares.

Variation #2: I also used scraps to create the rest of the card. The cream background was a larger scrap that I stamped a flourish on. The black and kraft layers were punched with a corner rounder and stamped with the same stitches stamp. I included a stamped sentiment on the front of the card and also on the inside. My finished card measures 5 x7".
