Ink around the edges of your card with chalk ink.
Attach two lengths of coordinating ribbon above and below the patterned paper (I used a dry glue runner as opposed to runny glue so that it wouldn't seep through the ribbon).
Stamp individual letters for the sentiment, trim and edge with chalk ink. Adhere to card overlapping the ribbon.
Attach strips of spotty paper to the top and bottom of the card blank and a strip of patterned paper across the middle, use alphabet rub ons to spell the word birthday and chipboard letters to spell the word boy, ink around the edge of the card with black chalk ink.
We have our very own 'birthday girl' today here at A Creative World,
Happy Birthday Maria!!!
Have fun cardmaking, Andrea xx
