I love the contrast of a clean and simple birthday card with a splashy burst of color and pattern.  Stampin’ Up! It’s My Party Designer Washi Tape makes that a snap on today’s 5″ x 5″ square card.

The inspiration for my layout is from this week’s Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge (MOJO432).

  • I created a custom envelope for this 5″ x 5″ square card using a striped pattern from It’s My Party Designer Series Paper Stack and the Stampin’ Up! Envelope Punch Board.  Learn how to use the Envelope Punch Board in my tutorial here.
  • I recommend using Fast Fuse Adhesive when creating custom envelopes.  It has a stronger hold than Snail.  Please be sure to watch this Stampin’ Up! video for helpful tips on using Fast Fuse Adhesive.  There’s a learning curve!
