Birthday Card from Wal-Mart Hack…!

Hello Friends!

Thank you and Welcome Back for Today’s Card

I was walking through Wal-Mart the other day and as I cut

through an aisle to get to another, I happened to cut through the

Birthday Paper Goods Aisle!

So I slowed and peeked at what they had there…they had so much!

There were Super Heroes, Unicorns, Princesses, and Knights!

They also had a ‘Cupcake theme’!

I guess there had to be some kind of gender neutral design!

 

Here is what I bought!

100_5633

Cute and Colorful! I had an idea!

Here is my idea…in a Card!

100_5634

Pretty neat isn’t it?

 

Here is the inside of the Card!

100_5635

Nothing spectacular, but I now have a non-gender specific card

for my Birthday Card stash! Although, I may put it into my

Masculine Birthday Cards…I am low on them!

Here are the Cards with the ‘Paper Plates and Beverage Napkins’!

100_5636

You can see that I cut out the ‘Cupcakes’ from the plate and used the

‘Beverage Napkins’ cut down to fit the card front. I had to use

the Whisper White Cardstock behind the napkin, they are thin and I wanted

the spots to stand out more and not be overshadowed by the card base color!

I think I’ll make a couple more of these with the pink and purple bottom cupcakes!

 

FOR THE CARDMAKERS, HERE ARE THE STOCK AND MEASURES:

CARDSTOCK:

Granny Apple Green- card base, 8.5″ x 5.5″ scored @ 4.25″ fold in half on the score

for the greeting banner’s mat, 1″ x 4″

Whisper White- front and inside panels, 4″ x 5.25″   greeting banner,  .75″ x 3.75″

INK:

Bermuda Bay- greeting and inside sentiment

STAMP SET:

Perennial Birthday- greeting and inside sentiment

Wal-Mart paper goods 7″ plates and beverage napkins

Here is the Card again!

100_5634

I used Stampin’ Dimensionals behind the cupcakes to adhere to card front!

 

Until the next Post…Blessings and Fun Hacks to you ALL!
