This bright and cheery 50th Birthday Card is easy to put together.
The card has several layers, but all of them are just a matter of cutting the card stock. The layers are repeated on the inside so everything coordinates. Add a couple of strips to your envelope and you have a complete look.
This card could be used for either male or female.
The Stampin’ Trimmer is excellent for cutting the card stock for this card. It is easy to get straight, accurate, narrow cuts with the Stampin’ Trimmer. On the inside I used a little trick I learned years ago. Rather than waste extra card stock for the layers, I cut a frame from the Pacific Point card stock and used the inside of the frame to punch out the circle for the front of the card. Here is a video demonstrating how to make the frame.
