Pretty simple - nice striped paper for background, a piece of thin cardboard with a cut edge. Used the same scissors to cut around the Hello and finished with 3 brads and a piece of "twine" ribbon - a good "guy" card.
Even though I am a ladybug nut I'm not really happy with this card. It came out OK, but seems to me to lack something. Maybe the turned down corner with the Happy birthday on it should have beenbrighter and more visible.
A Christmas card! in June! Saw the idea in a mag - various strips of paper make the tree and trunk, the "star" is a snowflake punched out of another paper. Took about 10 minutes to make, and part of that was locating my Christmas paper.
I did two of these (different colors) because I liked the background paper and thought it would be a good "guy" card, even with the flowers. There's a strip of ribbon running length wise behind the flowers...(can't remember if I've put the other one on here; if so, apologies)...
