Interlocking Happy Birthday

 

Hello everyone!

Today I am bringing you a fun card that can be customized for the birthday boy or girl (or man or woman) based on their favorite colors and their name. The base design of the card would remain the same you can just change out the name you put on the ribbon portion of the card and change the colors of paper you select based on the birthday person's favorite colors! Then they get a custom card that and get to feel extra special because you took the time to personalize it just for them. It lets them know that you take the time to notice the little details like...hey orange is James's favorite color, so Aunt Jen made a card using Orange just for James!

I took a card base and scored it for a gatefold then turned it on it's side. I attached the Stitched Happy Birthday Circle Frame to the larger Open Studio Pinpoint Circle Layers base then using pop dots attached that to the Bottom section of the gate fold.

I then cut out the Upper Case Alphabet Soup and attached the name of the birthday boy to my cut out Ribbon from the largest ribbon from the Poppystamps Classic Ribbons Die set. I then attached that with foam pop dots from the Top section of the gate fold of my card. The sections then close together with each piece sort of floating on top of the base card. It gives dimension to the card and protects the pieces from getting smashed when the card is opened and closed.

If this were a card for a girl I might add some bling or a ribbon somewhere, but since it was a masculine card I just left it alone. I hope you like the card and that you are staying cool and having fun crafting this summer!
