Happy Birthday Card

Hello, My Friends!

My friend Gretchen Schmidt sent me a photo of the coolest Birthday Card!  Check it out!

Instructions -
Outside: Create a  4-1/4” x 5- 1/2” card base out of white cardstock.* Layer three pieces of patterned papers on the front of card as shown. Stamp cupcake image onto cardstock and use a circle punch to cut it out. Layer onto a slightly larger circle piece and carefully stamp sentiment. Glue onto card front.
Inside: Create the Gift Card Holder using patterned papers as directed according to package directions and add to the inside of the card using a strong adhesive. Glue down two coordinating paper strips on the lower half of the card, towards the top to cover up the tabs. Use your Gift Card Holder die to create a second label out of white cardstock. Stamp cupcake liner and cupcake top on matching pieces of paper, cut out, and glue them down onto the right hand side of the label die piece, letting a bit hang off the top. Stamp sentiment on the left hand side of the label. Glue entire piece to the front of the Gift Card Holder die as shown.
*Use mat board to help everything lay flat if desired. Layer a piece of mat board on the front and then cover with the patterned paper. Layer a piece on the back side of the card.
Sizzix:  Gift Card Holder with Phrase Die Cut, Mat board
Other: patterned paper, punches, inks for stamping.
