Happy Birthday and Shop Small Saturday!

Here is a quick and simple card I made for Linda's birthday.  We celebrated on Tuesday or was it Wednesday... I've lost track of the days with a short work week!


Base - Night of  Navy - 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", scored and folded at 4 1/4"
Whisper White - 5 1/4" x 4"
Night of Navy Mat - 4" x
Whisper White - 4" x 3" (I think... but since she has the card, I'm thinking I trimmed it down to 4" x 2 3/4" - just a smidge above the H in Happy and the y in Birthday)

Play with it and make the mat 1/4" bigger on the top/bottom (not side to side)

Seems I've lost my touch for posting... ha ha - bear with me, I'll be back on track soon.

I used Floral Boutique Designer Washi Tape across the Whisper White layer and folded the edges over the back so they stay put.

A little wrap of Night of Navy Baker's Twine and a bit of bling with Metallic Enamel Shapes.

Thank you for looking in today.  Remember to Shop Small Business Saturday!  Shop with me!!

Happy Saturday! ~ Donna

Product List


  1. I like this card and I really like this paper. I don't think I ordered that HB stamp and it is one of my favorites. At least it is not in my group of birthday stamps. I will be CASEing this once I get this stamp. I probably have one that will work but I have always liked this font. I know I have the paper and Washi tape but I have to check on the baker's twine too. This is a great card to keep on hand! Thanks for the inspiration. I need to make a couple of birthday cards this weekend. Glad to see you back in the groove!

    1. Chris - Thank you, it feels good to be back and crafting again. I've missed my papers and inks!

      Better make your wish list and start ordering! :)

  2. Donna I love the layout of this card and it can be made for a masculine card too. Thanks for all you share! Miss seeing you. GlendaJ

    1. Thank you Glenda! It's good to see you here commenting.

      This card could be made so many ways with any washi tape around, add some flowers to make it more feminine and different washi to make it more masculine.

      I'll be at the Christmas party! I can hardly wait. See you soon!
