Zebra Birthday Card

It's been a long time. I'm going to try to do better... This card is 4.5x6". I used the Zebra from the Create a Critter cartridge.

There are two zebra stripe pattern papers on this card. I round punched the corners. I used "Happy Birthday" embossing folder. I also tied a small knot on the embossed part.

I finished the inside using the same pattern papers and added a white mat so a greeting could be added later.

I faux dotted the inside mat as well as the outside around the black zebra stripe to break up the white card base.

Easter Chick Fun Frame Card

You need double sided paper to complete the look as well as some ribbon and some Easter Chick embellishments. The finished look forms a frame around the flower in the center.
Card base is 9" x 6" scored and folded at 4.5". I used a solid colored mat that measured 4.25" x 5.75".
Using double sided pattern paper cut a piece to 4" x 4"
- using Martha Stewart scoring board, score on diagonals at 5/8" and 1 3/8" on each side. - NOTE: if using a different scoring board dimensions may vary!
- fold the 1 3/8" side in and then fold back at 5/8"' on all four sides
I used a "Happy Easter" sentiment at the bottom center.
I used the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug Folder to emboss about 3/4s of the mat which ended about 1/4" above the greeting and add a ribbon across the card where the Swiss Dots end.
Inside mat measurements:
5.5x4" on one side of the pattern paper
4.5x3" on white.
Makes a cute and fun card for any occasion! Enjoy!
