Circles and Stripes Card

Hey all,

My boyfriend's uncle is visiting from New York and we are celebrating his birthday during his visit. This will be the first time I meet the man and I don't know anything about him so I found this birthday card idea on Pinterest that I thought he'd like.

Here it is:


I cut a 5 and a half by 4 and 1/4 blue sheet for the card cover. Then a 5 and 1/4 by 4 inch white piece and embossed it with the stripe embossing folder. I used my scraps for all the other pieces. I cut the yellow and green polka dot paper and trimmed it to line up with the white striped paper. I cut circles using my Silhouette Cameo to the sizes of 1 and 1/4, 3/4, and 1/4 inch. I cut the yellow rectangle and stamped it with a happy birthday stamp. I attached all the pieces layering the circles in various spots.


On the inside and stamped a simple birthday wishees on the same yellow paper from the front and attached a blue background.
