Summer is here! The summer sessions have begun on campus and the weather is definitely warm enough. My garden is growing like crazy and all of the summer knit-alongs are starting. Time for a fun summer birthday card.
I knew I wanted to make birthday cards, so I pulled out this green patterned paper and designed from there. The stars from the patterned paper are actually the reverse side of the green patterned paper, so that was easy. I painted a chipboard star orange. The red cake is a die cut from Sizzix. The blue canvas-like ribbon was something I picked up years ago. And I had the chance to use a paper doily! I have been meaning to use one for awhile. The card opens up to say “Happy Birthday” stamped in blue ink on the white background. I always love paper that is white on the inside.
Hope your summer is off to a good start. Later this week I will share the fun summer socks I just finished knitting!
