The options are endless.

Let's make the card

1. Cut 4 1/4 X 11 Bermuda Bay cardstock, score the long side at 5 1/2 (card base)

2. Cut 4 X 5 1/4 Whisper White cardstock; adhere to front of the card base with liquid glue.

3. Cut 3 7/8 X 5 1/8 Pool Party cardstock; stamp Happy Birthday (Stylized Birthday stamp) in Archival Basic Black ink at the top (see card sample)

4. Cut 3 7/8 X 2 Picture Perfect Designer Series Paper (I used the confetti design) and adhere at the bottom of the Pool Party cardstock layer with liquid glue.

5. Attach 2 pieces of Tear & Tape on the Pool Party layer right above the designer paper. Rub a dryer sheet over the card layer (can help reduce static cling) and then remove the tape paper topping. Sprinkle the Gold Glitter Flakes over the tape pressing down with your fingers to assure they adhere well. Dump  off the excess and place back in the bottle. Note: I use a catch card under the cardstock when sprinkling glitter to catch the excess and easily dump back in the original container.

6. Attach 3 adhesive-backed sequins to accent the Happy Birthday.

7. Adhere the Pool Party layer to the card front with liquid glue.
