This homemade card is complied of odd scraps of paper. It is a great way to use up all those left over bits and pieces and the layout can be repeated over and over again using different pieces of paper.
First, create a DL size card by folding a sheet of white hammered card stock in half and cutting it to size.
Cut a strip of coloured card into a long panel. Here I have used pink, but you can use whatever colour you like.
Find a sheet of patterned paper, here I have used black and white floral scrapbook paper and cut it slightly smaller that the pink card.
Use a scalpel and metal edge ruler or alternatively a paper trimmer will do the job just as well. The size does not have to be precise as long as it is smaller than the pink card.
Set the pink panel on the left hand side of the card and secure it in place using double sided tape.
Cut two strips of mirror or silver card one slightly bigger than the other and place them next to the pink and black card panel. Again you can make your strips any colour you want.
Cut another piece of pink card in a rectangle shape and place a smaller piece of spare patterned scrapbook paper on top using double sided tape.
Print the happy birthday wording on to white paper and use a Fiskars cutter to cut out the wording.
Place your happy birthday wording onto the spotty paper and place two black eyelets at the top of the pink card. Place pink and black ribbon through the two eyelet holes and tie them in a knot at the top of the card.
Place the ribbon topper horizontally across the front of the card setting it in place using double sided tape.
Most card makers will have a scrap box where they store all their card making supplies, and if it is anything like mine then its probably bulging with scraps of paper that and odd bit and bobs. This type of card is great for using up all those spare materials.
Feel free to add any additional embellishments or even glitz it up a little by adding some glitter.
