Card Share: Happy Birthday America (Little Yellow Bicycle Just Because)


This is a card I created for a recent Paper Crafts call. It didn't get picked up, so not only do I get to share it with you, but I tore it apart and totally reworked it to make a hero-themed card for another publication (still waiting to hear on that one). :)

The chipboard frame is backed with product packaging. The text on the tag was created in a word processing document. I repeatedly typed "Happy Birthday, America!" a bit wider and longer than the size of my tag. I printed the text on a piece of 8 1/2 x 11" paper. For the next run through the printer, I attached the tag to the (now pre-printed) sheet of paper (lining it up so the text would print correctly on the tag) and ran it through my printer a second time. You could do the same thing for any other sentiment or holiday. 
Pin It!
