Floral Birthday Clock Card

Hello, Friends! Summertime is birthday season in our family. Because I have 9 cards to make in just a few short weeks, I look for designs that are quick and easy to put together but still look like a million dollars. Today I’m going to share a card “recipe” with you that allows you to make a beautiful card in about 30 minutes.

The ‘Aqua Medley’ collection is a perfect choice for summertime cards. The cool blues, butterflies and floral patterns of this paper just feel like summer! Here’s how I put this 6″ x 6″ top fold card together.

  • First, cut a 6” x 12” panel of the textile pattern from the Aqua Medley Paper Collection.
  • Next, score the panel in half at 6” and fold to make a 6” x 6” top fold card base.
  • Now Mat a 4 ¾” x 4 ¾” panel of the floral print on a slightly larger cardstock mat. Wrap vertical rows of 1” wide ribbon down the left hand side of the panel and secure on the back side with Scor-Tape. Place some foam tape or other dimensionals on the back of this panel. 
  • Then paint the Primed Chipboard Clock with a little white shimmer paint. Back it with foam tape or other dimensionals and adhere to a punch out doily round from the paper pad.  Back the doily with dimensionals as well. Center this and adhere on the wrapped ribbon portion of the floral panel.
  • Now mat a 5” x 5” panel of white cardstock on a slightly larger panel of aqua cardstock.  Back this panel with foam tape.
  • Next, center all the panels on the card base and adhere.  

Finish the card off with a selection of your favorite Little Birdie Arctic Ice Flowers and Butterflies. Add a white bow beneath the flowers for the perfect finishing touch.

Finish the inside of the card with more designer papers from the ‘Aqua Medley’ collection.

Line the card interior with 5 ¾” squares from the 12” x 12” paper pad.  Aqua Medley Journal Cards make a great pocket for a little gift card envelope.    Stamp a sentiment, then frame it with some extra leaves and a few glittery butterflies from the Die Cut Ephemera pack

See?  I told you it was quick and easy!  You can use this same card “recipe” with any Little Birdie Collection for any theme.  I hope I shared some tips and tricks today that you can use in your next crafty adventure.
Thanks so much for stopping by!

Cheerio, kathy
