Sending Birthday Wishes

Hi Crafty Friends,

Today I am sharing a birthday card I created recently.

I recently received the August Club La-La Land Crafts kit. I hadn't planned on buying this one, however I forgot to change the automatic ordering so before I realised I had paid for it ... oops! Luckily as this was the 5th Anniversary of the club, the stamps & dies were birthday themed and I will be able to make use of them a lot! I even received an extra die set as a anniversary gift.

For my card today, I created a U Fold or Bridge Card. To create the U Fold card I started with light blue cardstock that measures 8 inches x 4 3/4 inches. I then scored along the 8 inch side at 1 1/4 inches and 2 1/2 inches on each side. I then used white pigment ink and MFT Stamps Mini Cloud Stencil to add clouds to the card.

For the grass area, I used MFT Stamps Tucked-in Turf - Horizontal die-namics. This die was actually a tiny bit small for the width of the card, so I did some partial die cutting to make the right hand side a fraction longer and then trimmed off the excess when I adhered it to the front of the card.

I added the large group image from the From All Of Us stamp set which was one of the stamps included in the card kit. I then added balloons along the back of the card using rainbow colors. I added the birthday sentiment to the red balloon on the left hand side of the card.

I added a panel on the back of the card. This is a place for another sentiment and somewhere to write a personal message. I added two sentiments from the stamp set and also added two balloons.
