Swirls & Curls birthday!

Here's a cute & easy birthday card made using the Swirls & Curls Verses Hostess set and the floral Beyond the Garden Designer Series Paper from the Summer Mini.

Swirls & Curls Verses There's really nothing complicated about this card.  We're just using one stamp and several layers.

1) Fold a half sheet of Pacific Point card stock in half to form your card base.

2) Cut a 4" X 5-1/4" piece of DSP (Designer Series Paper) and adhere onto card front.

3) Stamp "Happy Birthday" in Basic Black ink onto Whisper White card stock & trim to 1-1/8" x 2-7/8".*

4) Color balloons with markers and punch corners using the Ticket Corner Punch.

5) Cut a 1-5/8" x 3-3/8" piece of Pacific Point card stock and punch corners using Ticket Corner Punch.

6) Cut a 2-1/8" x 3-7/8" piece of Old Olive card stock and punch corners using Ticket Corner Punch.

7) Cut a 2-5/8 x 4-3/8" piece of Rich Razzleberry card stock.

8) Adhere layers together as shown and adhere onto card.  You're done!  

This is a very basic design and you could easily substitute another pattern of DSP and coordinating card stock colors and/or different stamps.

*If these measurements seem complicated, you could easily bump them up to the following: 

  • 1-1/4" x 3" Whisper White
  • 1-3/4" x 3-1/2" Pacific Point
  • 2-1/4" x 4" Old Olive
  • 2-3/4" x 4-1/2" Rich Razzleberry

I just measure my first layer (the stamped Whisper White layer) and make each following layer 1/2" larger.
