Birthday Cards and Holder with Oh Happy Day

When Chrissy sent me the Oh Happy Day collection I knew, immediately, that I wanted to make some Birthday cards with it.  I like to make a quick holder if I make a set of cards to keep them together or, along with the set of cards, for a readily available present if I need one in a hurry.


Cut a piece of Lemonade Kaisercard to measure 7.5ins x 12 ins and score at 5.5 ins and 6.5 ins.

Cut two pieces of Bright Bursts measuring 5ins x 7in and one piece .75 ins x 7 ins.  Also, cut two pieces of Yey measuring 5 ins x 7 ins.


Adhere the Bright Bursts pieces to the front, back and spine of the folder.


Cut two pieces of ribbon (this was from my own supplies) and add to the left and right of the inside and on top of these glue the pieces of Yey .


From the remaining piece of Lemonade Kaisercard, cut two pieces 4 x 6.  Score at .25in, .75inm 5.25in and 5.75 ins, then score at .25 and .75 from the bottom.


Trim away the bottom corners and fold the bottom and sides to form pockets.  Adhere one to each side of the card holder approx .25in from the bottom.

Cut two pieces of Yay  2.75 x 4in and glue to the front of each pocket.


To decorate my cover I cut a rectangular piece of Snow Weave Kaisercard and an offset frame, also from Snow Weave Kaisercard.


I covered  these with some paper from the 6.5 x 6.5 paper pad. To finish the front of the card holder I decorated it  Collectables, stickers from the sticker bookCurios and ‘pop outs’ from the 6.5 x 6.5 paper pad


For the cards I used six 4 x 6 cards from my own supplies and a combination of papers and pop outs, from the 6.5 x 6.5 paper pad, stickers from the sticker book, Collectables, and fussy cut elements, also from the 6.5 x 6.5 paper pad.

Card 6


All six cards and envelopes fitted perfectly into the pockets in my card folder.


I think you will agree that the Oh Happy Day collection is perfect for making beautiful cards.  I did think I would give these ones away as a little gift for a friend but now am in two minds about that as I like them too much.
