Hello!  It’s time for a new challenge at Cards in Envy – where we make cards that fit in envelopes!  Cards for our challenges should have no lumpy, bumpy embellishments more than 1/4″ thick, so that the cards can be mailed at the standard first-class postage rate.

For the next two weeks, we’re focusing on the theme of “Another Year Older.”  Birthday cards are always fun ones to send!  I’ve used some older digital designer papers for my card.  I stamped a party hat onto a scrap of white cardstock and colored it to coordinate with the designer papers. Then I fussy cut it out and attached it to the card with dimensional adhesive.  I’ve used the current CAS(E) this Sketch! challenge for the layout of my card, but turned it upside-down so the triangular element would work better with the party hat.

What kind of birthday card will you create?  Will it be masculine or feminine?  For a child or an adult?  Or will it be neutral enough to be given to any person of any age?  No matter what you make, we’d love to have you share it with us at Cards in Envy!  You have until 7:00 p.m. Eastern time Sunday, May 1 to link your card at our challenge post.   Thanks for visiting my blog today!  :)  Comments are always welcome.

Cardstock: Wild Wasabi (Stampin’ Up); Pure Luxury White (Gina K. Designs); Vintage Birthday digital designer paper (Lizzie Anne Designs)
