Graphic Happy Birthday



My second post for today is a card I created for Seize The Birthday!

This week we are to create a masculine birthday card with this sketch:


I attached my pattern paper to my card stock base first. I then took a 4" X 5 1/4" piece of white card stock and cut a circle out of the bottom center. I attached a piece of transparency to the back, covering the cut out circle. I then cut notches out of both sides to make it look like it was two separate pieces. I stamped my sentiment on another piece of card stock and cut it into a small circle. I attached that circle to the transparency.  I then attached the whole piece to my card with Pop Dots and embellished with some buttons.



Supplies used: card stock - white; patterned paper by Samantha Walker for Creative Imaginations; buttons and twine - my stash; stamp - Inkadinkado; ink Jet Black Archival; transparency - Staples; Pop Dots.
