I tend to CASE cards, since I see so many that I like online. I saw this layout online when I was looking for ideas for the Tin of Cards stamp set. The card I saw used different Designer Series Paper. I used what I have on hand. And since this was for a birthday card, what better paper to use than Birthday Bouquet Designer Series Paper.
It just takes two pieces of Designer Series paper to make the main design for the card. The top piece is 3-3/4 inches by 3 inches and the bottom piece is 3-3/4 inches by 1/2 inch. Then stamp the little squiggly lines from Tin of Cards below that for more decoration. The final touch is the greeting.
For this layout, any paper you have and any greeting that will fit in the bottom area would work to create a beautiful card to send to someone. Since I have a lot of birthdays that I send cards out for, I tend to make most of my greetings for birthdays.
I hope this card gets your creative juices going.
