Happy Birthday to You




Hey there! Here's a fun card for you. It's inspired by Dawn's color challenge. I added some glitz and glam to the card by using glitter. How did I get those glitter polka dots? I stamped polka dot pattern, then added glue dots over the pattern. Next, adhere the glitter to the dots.

Enjoy your day and thanks for stopping by!

  1. Trim raspberry fizz cardstock into an A2 card.
  2. Trim vintage cream cardstock, add glue dots to make polka dot pattern, the adhere glitter to the dots.
  3. Trim raspberry fizz cardstock and stamp background. Adhere to card front.
  4. Stitch around cardstock and add buttons.
  5. Add ribbon and button.
  6. Stamp sentiment on cardstocks and add under button as a tag.
