Lovely Birthday Pivot Card

Good morning friends!

I have a Pivot Birthday card to share today ... I just adored the colours in this patterned paper.


I used the top branches of the All Season's Tree for the branches on the Katie Labels, and dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs for the flowers. Glitter dots were added to the flower centers. 


The words were stamped on a scrap from the patterned paper - it had the scalloped border printed on it so I really wanted to use it. I tied it with Bakers Twine and popped it up with foam tape.




Once I was finished though, I could see that the card felt a little flimsy. So I added some paper strips to the back ... one across the bottom back and the other one vertically beside the fold. Instant stability!



This one is going into my Birthday Card stash.

Supplies used:
Card size - 4-1/2 x 6"
Katie Label Pivot - Pop it Ups, Karen Burniston (Elizabeth Craft Designs)
All Seasons Tree (branches) - Pop it Ups, Karen Burniston (Elizabeth Craft Designs)
Pattern paper - Adorn It

7018 Glitter Dots, Elizabeth Craft Designs

Thanks for stopping by today!
