Make it Basic #2 – Unisex Birthday Card

Hi All!

As I type this, the latest video is currently uploading.  Gee they take F O R E V E R!!!

I must say thank you to my son Rob for the help he had given me the last couple of days, with trying to get the video’s to look at least competent by the end of production.

Unisex Birthday CardToday’s video is part two in the Make it Basic card tutorial series.  Aimed at the new crafter, I’m trying to make the cards as easy as possible for new cardmakers to follow – so I hope I’m being successful??

Today’s card is a unisex birthday card in Wisteria Wonder and Coastal Cabana  colours.  I love this particular colour of blue and though Wisteria Wonder isn’t my favourite colour in the Stampin’ Up! range, they do go together quite nicely.

This card also features another pattern in the Irresistibly Yours DSP pack – free in the Sale-a-brations catalogue, with a $90 or more order from the new Occasions catalogue.

This one, as you can see from the image, is a Horizontal Stripe pattern that stands out really well against the two colours I used.

Materials & Measurements Used:

8 x 5.5″ (20.3 x14 cm) Whisper White Cardstock (scored at 4″  (10cm) and folded in half)
3 3/4 x 5 1/4″ (9.5 x 13.3 cm) Coastal Cabana cardstock
