Quick Bestie Bday Card

Ah, the variety of papers, patterns, stamps, and embellishments we have for papercrafting! Most cards I make take hours because of the sheer variety of choice. This card, however, was a piece of cake. A sentiment journal card from the Authentique "Beauty" journal card stack was my starting inspiration for this birthday card, one that I needed immediately in order to send out my bestie's birthday package that same day. Starting with that solid inspiration, this card only took me about 30 minutes from start of design to completion.

Quickie card steps:
  • Cut strip of aged yellow polka dot scrap paper
  • Inked edges of ivory card base, scrap paper, and journal card using Tim Holtz Tea Dye Distress ink
  • Apply strip of bird & cage washi tape to left edge of card front
  • Gluestick & adhere yellow polka dot scrap paper to card, then repeat with journal card
  • Use Beacon 3-in-1 to glue two layers of Recollections paper flowers to bottom right corner of card, add pearl to flowers
  • Stamp interior sentiment (from Close To My Heart)
  • Done!
