Birthday Basics 4x4 Card


This is one of the cards that will be on the "menu" for my May card buffets.  Yes, I'm trying to be proactive and get my cards designed early.  It's not the typical A2 size card, but I thought it would be fun to change things up a bit. 

The overall card measures 4x4, but the front is slightly smaller.  The DSP is adhered to the "inside" of the card.  The base of the card measures 6-7/8x4 inches.  It's scored at 4 inches.  We'll still use an A2 envelope because square cards cost more to mail.

I used some of our gorgeous gold foil paper for the starburst layer which really makes the card pop.  I hope it carries over into the new catalog.  Fingers crossed!

Here's everything I used:

Stamps:

Crisp Cantaloupe Card Stock
     6-7/8x4 Card Base (scored at 4")
     Scrap for Flower

     2-1/4x2-1/2 for Circle (2" finished size)
     Scraps for Cupcake Pieces

     3x3 for Starburst
Birthday Basics DSP
     1-1/4x4 Patterned Layer

Note:  I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut the 2" circle, but you could also use the Circles #2 die.

Be sure to check out the latest weekly deals.  My favorite is the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack.  I've almost worn the silver images off the top because I used them so much. :)


Thanks for stopping by!
