Switching it up a little!

So this was the Make-N-Take card from my Card & Project group for March.

This is what it looks like when you swing the top up.

So I got to playing this weekend with some leftover pieces and wanted to do some birthday cards. So I made a girl & boy birthday card to share with you all.

This is the inside of it. In all of these cards - you can slip money or a gift card inside the pocket under the greeting.

This is my boy card. I love these colors together; Kraft, Certainly Celery, & Pacific Point. The black and white grosgrain ribbon and black brad complete the look.


Cut Kraft CS - 4 1/4" x 5 1/2". Cut the Certainly Celery CS - 3 1/4" x 4 1/4", and the Pacific Point CS - 2 3/4" x 4 1/4". Then stamp Certainly Celery CS as desired. Scallop the top of the Pacific Point Piece. I used the white gel pen to add some detail around the edges. Then Cut a piece of Whisper White CS - 2" x 3" and stamp as desired. Layer that onto a piece of Barely Banana CS - 2 1/4" x 3 1/4". Add some ribbon and your brad to hinge your card together. When you adhere your Certainly Celery CS to your Kraft CS, MAKE SURE to only put adhesive on (3) sides and start 1/2" down on each of the sides to make sure that your Pacific Point CS will layer behind it without getting stuck on adhesive!
