Banner Birthday Card

NOTE: There is a video of the process of making this card below. We have tried to be as thorough as possible with this and it’s not that complicated to make, really! The Birthday Banner Card is fun to make & really unique. Adults & children have liked this one so it may be a good idea to tuck 1 or 2 of these in your card stash! The base for the card comes in at 5.35 inches in length by 4 1/4 inches in width. Of course, I used a top fold card design for this example. For the patterned paper, the measurements I started with are 3.75 inches in width by 4.5 inches in length.

We wanted to try to come up with a use for the “Spring” die and this was where a bit of experimenting took us. Use the top portion of your card base and paper of your choice to cut each side at the same time. That helps with your alignment later when it’s time to assemble your card. Here are a couple of pictures with the T Square ruler on a 12×12 inch mat:

Adhere printed paper once you’re happy with the angles that were cut from the spring die. We colored white stitch peel offs, added Nuvo Drops and adhered the cut portions to make corners from the bottom. Add your sentiment and you have a fun banner card!
