When you make a birthday card, don't be afraid to use several punches on your card. For this card, I used a scallop border punch on solid paper and placed it over stripe paper. I used a 1/2" corner punch on two layers of paper, the actual card and the solid and stripe papers. Finally, I used two different kinds of flower punches. Using the flower punches made it easy to coordinate the colors on the card since my scrapbook paper was already color coordinated.

I like the idea of using a stripe paper behind a vellum sentiment for my handmade card ideas because you can still see the pattern behind the sentiment. The sentiment was created on my computer and printed on a laser printer.

I added a cream, satin bow and you can add other embellishments like gems but I decided to skip it on this handmade card.
