Bird Birthday Card

One of my long-time pen pals is celebrating a birthday this week, and today's post is the card I sent off to her.

A long time ago, I found these pretty cards on clearance at Michaels. They are by K&Co - and are patterned tri-fold cards - 5x7" with lovely cream envelopes. There were 5 different patterns in the package, and this was one of them:

I had these sweet stitched felt stickers (by Martha Stewart)  from when I decorated a bedroom lamp for our grandbaby, and since my friend loves birds - the bird sticker was perfect.

The felt border stickers are also by MS ... the paisley paper is by K&Co and matches the cards very nicely.

The first picture is of the card closed.

Here is the card with the front open! I used my Cricut to cut the scallops from the same patterned paper that is on the front of the card. The card is double sided, with the gingham being the flip side of the harlequin.  

The label punch is by Stampin' Up, and the words are by Verve.

Finally, here is the inside!

After hoarding these cards for years, it was fun to break them out and USE them!

Thanks for stopping by today.
