Today is a special day! It’s my man’s birthday! I haven’t made his card yet so I’m sharing another birthday card that is a lot of fun to make! But I want to give him a shoutout! HAPPY BIRTHDAY CHAD!!
It is a card but with an extra twist of having a treat with it! The card idea came from Dawn Griffith! Yep you read that right! Two days in a row I am featuring cards that were inspired by Dawn! Her videos are fun to watch, even as a fellow demonstrator! Here‘s her video about how to make this card. My card does not hold a gift card like her’s does.
I used Rich Razzleberry card base cut to 4 1/2″ by 5 1/2″. My next layer up is 4″ by 5 1/4″ of Painted with Love designer series paper. I also used this paper again at 2 7/8″ by 3 3/8 and 3/4″ by 2 7/8″. Sweet Sugarplum layer is cut at 3 3/8″ by 4 1/2″. Whisper White layer is 3 1/4″ by 4 3/8″. Last our other piece of Sweet Sugarplum is cut to 3″ by 8 1/2″ and scored on the long side at 3 1/2″ and 7 5/8″. This last piece you will want to fold on those score lines. This creates your pocket for your treat!
Before you adhere that pocket, we need to add the treat inside. My treat is actually a piece of chocolate!! So I had to add an extra step so my chocolate would fit. I took another piece of Sweet Sugarplum cut at 1 1/4″ by 3 and scored at 5/8″. Folded it in half. I then used tear tape to adhere my chocolate down in the middle of the fold and made sure my chocolate edge was at the edge of my paper. Then I stamped that into the pocket. I made sure not to staple the chocolate packaging.
I wrap a bow around the top flap of the pocket with Whisper White organza ribbon. To finish off the front of the card I die cut a oval stitched shape out of Dazzling Diamonds glimmer paper. Then layered on a die cut Birthday from a piece of Rich Razzleberry card stock. The Happy Birthday thinly does say Happy Birthday and are normally attached. I decided I wanted to just use the Birthday so I trimmed the happy off. This die is apart of the Happy Birthday Gorgeous bundle. The stamped Happy is from that stamp set in the bundle. I just stamped it in Rich Razzleberry and trimmed it down. I layered the oval on with Stampin’ Dimensionals… as if it needed more dimension haha
The inside of my card just has a Whisper White layer of 4″ by 5 1/2″ so you can write inside. This card has lots of layer but it is so worth it! What a fun card to give someone that you may not buy a gift for but it still has a little something. You probably could still fit a gift card in behind the chocolate.
I hope you enjoyed this card as much as I do! I just love the colors and the layers!! I don’t want to give this card away because its so pretty! haha Well I guess I better pick just the right person to send it to!
