Bright Birthday Card!!!

Well we have made it half way through another week!  Only two days left to finish my project for my Saturday over at Everyday Cricut!
Today's card is a bright and colorful Birthday Card.
This card is 6x6 square--usually I would make it a bit smaller but a lot of people need to sign this one so the size was a plus.  I cut a triple mat starting at 5 1/2" square and working down by 1/4" from there.
The center band is also triple layered.  1 1/4" wide by 6" long for the base and decreasing by 1/4" in width for each layer.  I added some metal accents instead of gems for bling.
Fore the center sentiment I used a Stampin' Up Stamp (also from my garage sale haul).  I stamped on daisy white CTMH card stock with Versa Mark ink and used stampin foil in purple to add a bit of shine and make the sentiment pop off the page. (you can see it shine in the first picture)
I trimmed up the center and than layered twice with using pop dots between the two sets of mats.  I also added a 2"strip of the black pattern paper to the inside of the card--Why should the party stop when you open it up?

Thanks for stopping in today--on Friday I have a card I made for my intern for his last day!a
Make it a great one

  9. Bryan,

    You are so creative and so versatile!!! :) This card is so colorful-such a contrast to the last card you posted (the sympathy card)! They are both perfect for their intended occasions.

    Thanks for sharing,
