Hi all,

        Here is the third fab project using the great kit from Ali- craft. I have made a Birthday card which is very simple but i think funky and effective.

You will need:  the stash items are things we all have laying around so don't worry
             2 x white A4 card stock- from stash
    3 x Patterned sheets from paper stack
    Corner rounder - from stash
    Stamp set: Kaisercraft friends
    Purple Stayz on - from stash
    Cocktail stick - from the kitchen 
    Glossy accents - from stash
    Card folder / scorer
    Double sided tape
    Foam dots - from stash

Step 1: Score and fold 1x A4 white card to make A5 card

Step 2: Cut 1 piece of white card 14cm x 20cm - round the corners

Step 3: Select 3 x pieces of patterned paper from the Birthday stack

Step 4: Using the spare white card cut 2x panels 6cm x 6cm then round corners cut 1 panel from the spare card 14.5cm x 6cm, round the corners. 

Step 5: Cut patterned paper to fit the panels : 2 x 5.5cm x 5.5cm round the corners. Cut another panel 14cm x 5.5cm and round corners.

Step 6: Stick the paper to the white card panels with double sided tape.

Step 7: Attach the panels to the back ground card using foam dots.

Step 8: Stamp a saying from the Kaisercraft Friendship stamp set using the purple stays on or any colour that matches the design on your chosen papers.

Step 9: Add a cocktail stick under a flag embellishment found at the front of the Birthday paper stack. I attached using glossy accents as this will stick most things but you need to leave it to dry.

Step 8: Layer the card together 

I hope you all like this card, I love the simplicity of it. It is fun and Funky.
