Birthday Card

20110303_1 My niece turns 24 on Monday so I had to come up with a quick card to get in the mail in the morning. This is what I came up with.

I started with a piece of white card stock folded to 4 1/4” x 5 1/2” as my base. I used the 8:10 stock image on my Imagine and cut it at sized it to print and cut at 4 1/2” and flooded it with a light olive green from the Imagine More Cards cartridge. I cut this mat down to 4” x 5 1/4” and ran it through my cuttlebug using the Paisley embossing folder. I then cut the Happy Birthday Chick image found on page 10 of the handbook for the Image More Cards cartridge at 3 1/2” using the layers feature and deleted the chick and his hat so it didn’t cut. I then cut just the birthday cake from the image on page 2 of the handbook. I again did this using the layers feature and deleting the images I did not want. I cut the cake at 2.3”. I added some yellow and orange stickles to the candle flame. Since I have to mail this card I limited the use of foam tape to just the back of the striped paper to adhere the image to the card. All the other layers were adhered together using my Zig Two Way glue pen and  added some ribbon from my stash. Thanks for visiting.
