I love when summer hits the stores because they are full of bright colors and cheerful patterns. Kinda like this Festive Birthday paper!

Pumpkin Pie card base: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″
Festive paper:  3-1/4” x 5”
Melon Mambo:  3-1/2” x 5-1/4”
Circle Size: 2″

You can make a card using this layout with ANY supplies you have! Just tape together your pretty paper and a colored mat to go around it, wrap some ribbon around that piece & tie it in a nice knot, then tape it to the left side of your card front. Stamp a greeting, punch it out into a circle and add it to your card front with dimensionals. Easy peasy!

If you don’t have a good basic greeting set, I love the Tin of Cards stamp set that is retiring at the end of May. Actually it’s only guaranteed available until May 22nd and then it’s available while supplies last. I use the sentiments from this stamp set ALL THE TIME! Who doesn’t want to receive “a happy hello” in the mail? It’s like sending a smile!

Here’s something else fun, I made this card from my Notepad Cover & Card One Sheet Wonder!

You can make THREE covers for Jr Legal size pads and THREE cards from ONE sheet of pretty 12×12 paper. Written instructions for you to print and a video can be found here:
