Broadway Bound birthday card

Hi there,

Thanks for joining me again. Today I have a really simple little project for you but it still has an "wow" factor - at least I think so. This was the birthday card I made for my niece who was 19 on Christmas Eve.

This card was very simply a Basic Black square card blank, a layer of patterned paper (I used Broadway Bound) and a diecut - I just cut our Happy Birthday thinlit die out of our Gold Foil sheet.

This was just perfect in the run up to Christmas when I was so busy - a quick and easy card was definitely called for! The patterned paper I used was our Broadway Bound Speciality Designer Series Paper. This is a pack of beautiful papers which are foiled in shiny gold on one side and have brightly coloured birthday patterns on the reverse. They are so useful for celebration cards and other projects.

I'm not sure you can see the gold foil very clearly in the photos above so here is one where I've really tried to catch the light.

Along with the card I made a small box with one of the other papers for a small gift and also a gift money wallet. So great to be able to produce this set of coordinating card and gifts so easily!
