Today I’d like to share a fun birthday card made using a few We R Memory Keepers Punch Boards – some of my all time favorite crafting tools! If you’d like to see a video of the process, including a demo of how to use the Punch Boards I used, check out my YouTube video below. If you’d prefer a written tutorial, keep scrolling.
Here’s what you need to make the card as shown below.
*Two coordinating 12×12 sheets of scrapbook paper cut to the following dimensions: 12×7.5 for the card base, and 10.75×10.75 for the envelope.
*Eight different patterned 6×6 sheets of scrapbook paper. Cut 2 inches from one side of each sheet. From that 2×6 section, cut a piece 1.5×2.5. From the remaining 4×6 section, cut a piece 4×2.75.
*We R Memory Keepers Mini Alphabet Punch Board
*We R Memory Keepers Pocket Punch Board
*We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board
*Score Board (optional but helpful)
*Heidi Swapp Word Dies Happy Die
*Sizzix Big Shot or other die cutter
First, from the 1.5×2.5 paper pieces, cut the letters to spell BIRTHDAY using the Mini Alphabet Punch Board.
Use the Pocket Punch Board to create eight 1.75×2.25 notch pockets.
Pair each letter with a pocket with a different pattern.
Score your card base on the long side at the 6” mark and fold in half. With the adhesive runner, adhere the pockets to the front of the card in two rows of four, with the pockets holding the letters B,I,R,T on the top row and the letters H,D,A,Y on the second row.
Cut the word Happy from coordinating/contrasting scrapbook paper using the Heidi Swapp die. Add adhesive to the back and adhere across the top row of pockets.
Using your WRMK Envelope Punch Board, create your Envelope from the 10.75×10.75 piece of paper.
All done! I left the inside blank for a handwritten message, but you could also stamp a sentiment if you’d like.
The card pictured at the top of the post was made for my nephew Max using more boy friendly paper, and instead of die cutting the word Happy, I’m just lettered it across the top using a Stabilo Fine-liner. I also made one for my niece Adelaide, who turned 5 yesterday. Instead of the word Birthday, her pockets held the letters of her name. She’s headed to kindergarten and just learning to spell, so I know this card will be a hit with her.
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial!
