When it comes to simple, this card makes the “cut”. The finished size on this card is 4 x 4 and perfect when you want to write a “little” birthday message to a friend, it also makes a perfect gift tag. I think the “white on white” adds elegance to even the simplest of card. A similar card was posted on Pinterest and I have to apologize I could not find the original post to give credit to it’s creator.

Start with 8 x 4 piece of Whisper White card stock and fold it in half for the card base. Layer a 3¾ piece of card stock, then 3¼ inch square of Powder Pink card stock. Stamp the spray image from the Beauty Abounds stamp set in the upper right and lower left using Smokey Slate ink, and the floral spray in Powder Pink ink. The “Happy Birthday” sentiment is from the Hand Delivered stamp set and stamped with Smokey Slate ink.

On a small piece of Whisper White  card stock use a butterfly from the Butterfly Gala stamp set with Black Memento and use the Butterfly Duet stamp to punch it out. Run a thin line down the body of the butter with Mono liquid glue, adhere to the card, fold the wings up a bit and add the Pink Rhinestone.

Wrap a piece of Powder Pink Ribbon around the stamped card stock and adhere to the pink with Stampin’ Dimensional’s. The finishing touch was a small sequin from the new Iridescent Sequin Assortment.

I used my envelope maker to make the small envelope maker to make a matching envelope in less than a minute.
