Happy Birthday Card

I'm not sure about ya'all but I'm always in need of birthday cards and thought I would go towards that route for today's project so I hope you'll enjoy this little "How To" :)

1) Take a journaling sheet from your MM journaling book and trace it onto a folded sheet of cardstock. Be sure you have the fold at the top. Trim out. Ink the edges with black. Next take one sheet of your choice, cut a piece that measures about 1.5 inches by 7.5 inches. Use the threading water punch and punch out both sides and ink. Adhere it through the middle of your card. Trim the excess off so that it matches the shape of your card. Ink the edges.

2) Cut a 4.5 inch circle out and stamp your sentiment around the circle. Ink the edges of your circle. Next you will need a square in the size of 3.5 inches by 3.5 inches. Ink its edges. Adhere to the center of your card. Then adhere your circle sentiment like shown below. Place your swirls in the center of your circle.
3) Next, using another Birthday sentiment adhere it in the lower right hand corner like shown below. Be sure to ink the edges first. Using three random size circles cut by hand. Wad them up to distress them and then ink. Stitch them down using a cotton thread and needle, and Voila!

Supplies used:
Basic Grey Granola Papers (4)
Light Blue & White Cardstocks
