Birthday Card

This is a very basic card.
Scrapbooking paper was used for the front of the card
base. I use a plain white A2 blank card, which
means it measures 4.25 x 5.50 inches.
Glue is applied to the card, then
with the scrapbook paper still in the stack,
the card is carefully lined up along two edges.
I then use the card base itself as the guide
and cut the card from the paper.

The edges of all the pieces and the card are
sponged. To get the green background
on the Cuttlebug A2 folder I inked the folder
and then embossed white cardstock that
had been cut with a Spellbinders Label die.

The phrase was computer generated.
The Spellbinders Label die was positioned over
the phrase and taped in place with
low tack painters masking tape.
Next step was to use a Cuttlebug embossing
border folder on the bottom, then apply the
purple ink.
