Birthday Block Card

Every morning, on weekends and holidays, I eat breakfast with my computer…. some coffee and some crafting videos….. while I was doing the same yesterday morning, I came across Block Card Video by Deb Valder…. a super cute card….a different shape…. and many different decor possibilities. There was another similar video and a third one….made me think…is this new style or am I just getting it to it late….either ways, I loved it and had to try it.ย 

ADORABLE!!!! The final card size is 4-1/2″ x 6″ so a little bigger than normal card size ( 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″) so you could make a matching envelope or just find bigger size envelopes. However, this is super simple to make. The tough part is thinking about how to decorate it ๐Ÿ˜‰ย 

You could decorate front, top and back or just front and top….. either ways…. it looks cute…. and surely will bring smile to the receiver’s face. Deb Valder has a perfect tutorial explaining how to make this card (I loved how she explained it compared to the other 2 videos).ย  Click HERE for the tutorial.

For this project, I used Vanilla base, and layered it with Espresso Cardstock and Everyday Enchantment Pattern Paper (All paper from Stampin’ Up!). The stamps are from following sets: Ciao, Baby!,ย  A Fitting Occasion and Create A Cupcake (All by Stampin’ Up! and now retired) and used the coordinating punches. I decided to add some sparkle…so I did some gold embossing on the cupcake holder and added some blue rhinestones for sprinkles on the icing!

I enjoyed making it… and intend to make more for other occasions ๐Ÿ˜€ and give it better finishing touches then this ๐Ÿ˜‰

Until next time,

Happy Krafting,

Cheers =)
