A Challenge? No...Just a Birthday!

Paper Cutz Challenge #52: Nephew's Birthday Card

What is the first design that pops into your mind when you hear red, white, blue, black, and yellow? Well, for me it was a birthday card since the nephew's birthday is this upcoming week (He is turning 20, so I wanted to make sure the card was mature but fun)and we had to mail a gift card today. First, I went thru the stacks of paper and then remembered the Wild Card cartridge had the perfect present card.
I cut the yellow card at 8 3/4". I used Filigree Smudge by The Paper Company which is black and white. The bow is red and I did not glue the top portion so it has a 3-D effect. I added blue swirly ribbon (cut from Wild Card) and blue gems.

On the inside of the card, it says "for you" which was cut in red cardstock using the Wild Card cartridge also.

Looking forward to hearing from you. Please leave a comment, so I can visit your site and see your postings. I love sharing!

Take Care,


  1. I am in need of a b-day card for an 80 year old on Saturday and I am going to make the same card. I will see what colors I can come up with but am so glad for your inspiration.

  2. I have this cart but for some reason I didn't really know what to do with that present card on it. I guess I was only thinking Christmas. Silly me! I like the way you used it for a birthday card.

    BTW, here is the link to the treat bag on splitcoast stampers:

    Have a great day!

  3. I love this card, thanks for reminding me about the fun cards on Wild Card.

  4. Another great card from the Wild Card cartridge! It is perfect for a 20 year old!

  5. What a great card Georgiana! Thanks so much for joining us at PCC this week!
