Flower Power Birthday Card {A Really Simple One}

This card is so simple it's crazy! 

I have a bunch of pre-cut flowers on chipboard, so I picked the biggest one out for this card. Then I cut a piece of patterned paper just a little bigger than the flower but in the same outline to border the flower. I glued both pieces to my standard base of white card stock measuring 5.5x4.25 inches when folded.

Then I added the "happy birthday" sentiment. Easy peasy, lemon squeezy. 

P.S. I know I've been a little card crazy lately. I have a non-card post tomorrow! :-)

  1. Very cute! And hey... when you're as good at making cards as you are, it's ok to go card crazy!
    Thanks for linking with my Super Link Party! :-)

    1. Oh, you're sweet! Thanks so much; I'm enjoying the party :-) Oh and I've been meaning to leave a comment and tell you that I love your "comics" in your blog header. Too funny. :-)

  2. Erin,
    Love this! I haven't made cards in what seems like forever and I so need to get back to making them. I actually had to buy (sigh) a few birthday cards the other day and paid a whopping $12.oo for 5 cards (gasp) Not again! You are an inspiration with your beautiful work :) Thanks again for sharing at Creative Thursday this week. Michelle

  3. I really, REALLY, love this card. The paper behind the flower makes it extra special. Definitely going to use this trick in the future. So glad you linked up at Etcetorize this week~

  4. It is a really pretty card! I would be so happy if somebody would wish me a happy birthday with a lovely card like this one!!
