It was my niece Kate's birthday on Monday and this the card that I made for her. This is a new kind of card for me. I saw something similar whilst blog-hopping last week and came up with a design for a tall (DL) card and another that will fit into a 6" square envelope. I'll show you one of them soon.. To make the base card I cut down a C5 card to 8.5" x 4.5" (basically a DL or Legal Size in the U.S) and covered the card front with black cardstock. I then cut a smaller piece of patterned paper (from the Paper Lace 8x8 stack from DCWV), punched the bottom edge and wrapped it with ribbon. It was then adhered to the front of the card with foam tape. I then cut a 5.5" square matted with a piece of pink paper. This was adhered flat to the card. A shaped panel was adhered centrally with foam tape, and on top of that a scalloped oval. A standard oval cut from patterned paper was adhered to the scalloped oval and holds the Happy Birthday greeting and the name. To complete the card I added a flourish, punched butterflies (from an Xcut border punch), flowers and a smattering of pearls.
