Happy Birthday Window Card

This is a cute little card that took only a few minutes to put together after you cut it out. The great thing is that it fits in an A2 envelope so it is easy to mail. I made this from scraps from the card I made for our little Sassy Sissy's 6th birthday.  I am so excited with this video as it is the best so far that I have done and easy to follow. See you are learning about cards and Sheila is learning to video tape what I do.

Here is a close up of the file I will be providing for you. Now just as a reminder this makes 2 cards. You do need to make a hand cut on another sheet of paper to fit the back inside of the card if your paper is not double sided so it looks attractive. The boxes shown are to write your sentiment on. This was so easy to make I thought well I have the female looking card I need to make one for guys!  So I got more paper and did a quick cut and packed each card in a little zip lock and put it in my little bag of tricks.

Well here are all the pieces. The paper is My minds eye and all is glittery so when you look at it in the light it just glistens.
This card is so easy as after folding all you need to do is glue the little pieces on... just that simple.
This is my inside back I cut with left overs from the beach layout. I inked the white sentiment with green. I wish I dad used the Ranger Marigold Distress ink but hind sight is everything!

Now doesn't this make a great man's card? Colors are more masculine and the stripes for the card base is perfect. Being a woman I do like the pink better, but this gives you an idea of the same design in two separate and very different colors look.
This is just a side view so you can actually see how this card glistens, and the cool thing is the entire card is like this!!!
There you go side by side, they sure look different be the male or female version this is a fun and easy card to make. This is your Sassy Happy Birthday 2Up Gypsy File and DS File. I sure hope you liked today's project and you come back and see us real soon.

I am always encouraged by your sweet - sweet words. Your comments inspire me to keep scrapping and sharing things with you.

Those cards are so cute and colorful! Very pretty. You're using DS? Or is that a Gypsy? I don't have either but will probably eventually get some kind of "helper".
