Birthday Wishes Card with Tag



Birthday wishes card with tag - Front
Made this birthday card for a female friend. Thus, most of the materials used are based on various hues and shades of pink.

Friday Sketchers Sketch #124
This card is inspirational from Friday Sketchers Sketch #124 sketch/challenge as shown above which sponsored by Simon Says Stamp. However, instead of oval, I modified into rectangular image as it is easier to incorporate the tag. 

Close-up : Cupcake
A rectangular pocket is made using light purple with rose embossed card stock. Then, a red card stock is matted on top of it. Cupcake from Hero Arts CG151 Happy Birthday Cupcakes is stamped on the white card stock. The bottom of the cupcake and its confetti is colored using marker while the top of the cupcake is colored using water color pencil and blended with Johnson & Johnson Baby Oil. Some heart shaped gems and embellishment are added to the cupcake.

Close-up : Corrugated strips
Two (2) strips of corrugated card of light and dark pink are attached onto a pink card stock. Then the rectangular pocket is attached on top of the corrugated strips. The whole card is matted onto a folded light yellow card.

Tag pull-out - Pink side
A tag is made using two different colors on each side. Happy Birthday balloon from Hero Arts CL382 Wonderful Birthday is stamp on a yellow card stock and trimmed. It is attached on the pink side of the tag using pop dots. An orange string is added to the balloon as embellishment.

Tag pull-out - Orange side
Birthday message of "Hope your birthday is simply wonderful" from Hero Arts CL382 Wonderful Birthday is stamp onto the orange side of the tag. Some ribbon string of pink and red is used to tie on top of the tag.

The tag is inserted into the rectangular pocket with orange side facing outside. Thus, when the receiver pull out the tag, she will be surprised with the message. The tag can be used as bookmark as well.

Theme : Cupcake and Pink
Title : Hope your birthday is simply wonderful
Size : 12.7cm x 19.05cm or 5" x 7.5"
