Fun Birthday Wishes..


Thanks for partying with us this month.  Get ready for a great selection of fun card folds!
You should have come to my blog by way of Patty's blog.
If not, be sure to go to the first party at Joyslife.com!



Here are some birthday wishes all wrapped up in an envelope card!
First item you need:  a pretty colored envelope.



1. First, seal the envelope.
2.  Cut off the short end at about 1.25 inches. 
3. Use a crimper to crimp the large portion of the envie.



4.  Decorate the top. Make sure you leave room for the "lid." 
5.  Create a note card for the inside of the pocket envelope.
This fold is perfect for gift cards or little token gifts.  


One lucky commentor, who follows my blog, will be picked to receive a collection
of colored envies so you can create this card for yourself!

Next up: Jennifer's Birthday Blog Bash!

What a great idea! I am going to have to give this one a whirl. Just need to borrow (or finally buy) a crimper. How many times could I have used one????? Hundreds. Should just go and get one! Now you have given me reason to! Thanks for sharing!
