Pink Birthday Card

Here's another Birthday Card. It's an extremely simple birthday card. I didn't feel good today so I wanted to do a tutorial that was simple. If you guys want to see vidoes instead of pictures. Were also 10 followers away from a giveaway! Keep commenting and sharing your intrests. I always like to hear what you have to say.

Heres the supplies I used! : )

Stampin' Up! 3 Heart Punch
Stampin' Up! Corner Rounder
Kraft Cardstock
White Gel Pen
Light Pink Thread
Stampin' Up! Teeny Tiny Wishes
4 Different types of Pink Pattern Paper
Versa Mark Ink Pad
Zing! Clear Embossing Powder
Martha Stewart Heat Gun

Please comment below if you have any thoughts!

I made a standard cardstock size 4.5x5.5 and scored at 4.25. I cut 4 square pieces of patterned paper at 1-3/8x1-3/8. 

Here I rounded the corners of the four squares, but as you can see above, their rounded at opposite edges and the rounded corners are pointed in. Then I used my white gel pen to stich around the top right square. I had an extra creme heart in my scraps so I added dimensionals to it and adhered it to the top right square.

Here I cut a little slit in the crease for the string to wrap around the card. I wrapped the string about 2-3 times then tied it in a bow.

I stamped the bottom right of the card with the happy birthday sentiment in VersaMark ink and covered it in Zing! Clear Embossing Powder. Then I waved over this with a heat gun. Check out the tutorial at "The Basics" tab.

Here's the finished card! I hope you like it! I just went around the edge with my White Gel Pen and stitched it.
