C4C 355 Birthday Pull Card

Good morning friends

It's Saturday  so that means a new challenge at the Crazy 4 Challenges Blog. Our September 2016 hostess is Raquel Mason and our Guest Designer is Fran Sabad.

Raquel's son Jake celebrates his birthday today, so her challenge is to make a Birthday Card for someone you love. Our son had a birthday this month, so this is the card I made for him using some fun beer stickers from my stash.

I started my card with an A2 patterned card - pattern on the right side and and the solid coloured back on the left. These cards are white inside, and they are perfect to use for any of the Pull Cards by Karen Burniston for Elizabeth Craft Designs. 

As is, it would create a 5-1/2" square card. I trimmed 1/4" off each side for a 5 x 5-1/2" card which fits perfectly into a 5 x 7" envelope for mailing.

I stamped the banners with Karen Burniston's new Occasions Clear Stamps, then die cut them with the coordinating die in the Anita Frames Pop-Up. The banners were strung with bakers twine.

Check out the C4C blog to see how the Crazies have been inspired by the challenge. We'd sure love to see your take on it, so be sure to stop by the Crazy 4 Challenges blog and link up your creations. If you are uploading to an online gallery, please use the keyword C4C355.
