DIY Birthday Wishes Card

I am not big into making cards but I do enjoy giving hand made cards to my friends and family.  I just love hearing someone say “You made this! It is beautiful!”  

At work I was invited to participate in a Birthday Card Swap and I couldn’t resist.  A Card Swap is where you make 20 (or however many people are participating) of the same card, and then they are dispersed and you get 20 different birthday cards.  Genius!
 
So here is my card.

 I think it turned out really cute!
 
First, choose the paper, this is the fun part for me.  I wanted it to be springy and bright.

Cut the sheets into strips and punch out A LOT of labels using the Curly Label Punch.

Glue the shapes evenly spaced apart on Confetti White card stock.

Cut the 12×12 sheets into 6, 4 x 5 1/4 squares to adhere to the front of the cards.
 
Stamp Birthday Wishes onto a strip of Confetti White card stock and use the Decorative Label Punch to punch it out.

Ink the edges of the Birthday Wishes tag like I did here on Easter Egg Banner and add 3 small pearls to the bottom.

Tie a ribbon around the 4 x 5 1/4 square and put some dimensionals on the back of the Birthday Wishes tag to make it stick up off of the page just a little.

Stick to the front of the square over the ribbon.
