This is a simple card using old stamps but could easily be a birthday card. Just change out stamps.

Items Used:

  • One 8 ½ x 11”piece of Granny Apple Green Card stock (Item # 146990. Price $8.75 US)

To Create:

Using your paper trimmer cut you 8 ½ x 11” Granny Green card stock in half to measure 5 ¼ x 8 ½. Have paper sit on scoring board with the 8 ½ sides on top and bottom. Then score from top to bottom 4 ¼” Or simply fold the 5 ½ x 8 ½ piece of paper in ½

Cut 2 pieces 4 x 5 ¼” from white card stock. One piece will be used for inside card and the other will be used for card front. You can stamp your sentiment on white piece of card stack and adhere to inside of card.

With the other piece of white card stock adhere the strips of colored paper diagonally across. I used a rainbow order but you can be inventive. The trim any strips hanging off the white cardstock. Glue the white cardstock with colored strips on the front of card.

On a 2 ½ square piece of white card stock I stamped some small butterflies and a rainbow. I used my markers to color butterflies and rainbow.

With dimensionals I adhered the square to bottom of page. I positioned the square piece of paper with corners face up, down right and left. This was done to add interest.

You could stamp “Happy Birthday “ if you wanted.
