A friend had a milestone birthday last weekend and I made the card for our group of friends. The Year of Cheer specialty paper can be a Christmas paper but it works really well for other occasions too. I love the metallic touches. I've teamed it up here with some Dazzling Diamonds glimmer paper and the new champagne foil sheets - I can tell I'm going to have to grab some more of them. Love the soft champagne colour. The large number framelits are a really handy addition to the stash - so great to pull out for those extra special birthdays.
I pulled out my envelope punch board to make an envelope with another sheet of the specialty paper. (Once I reminded myself of how to use it. So easy!) The card is 6" square. I made a belly band to hold it all together. A 12" strip for the belly band doesn't quite go around a 6" card but I used a foil circle to bridge the gap. That happy birthday framelit is another one that's getting a lot of use here lately. Here's some more pics.
