I have had a few people inquire about the sizes of all these tiny rectangles, so I am editing this post to include the measurements. Scroll to the bottom of this post to see the update. (Edited 10/8/2018).
Just sharing a quick and easy birthday card that I had created.
Using a designer series paper stack and a simple greeting was basically all it took to design this card.
Usually, I tend to try to come up with a unique design and spend a lot of time on trying to come up with a card, but this time the card came together relatively quickly.

Try this layout with the greeting of your choice and the color combo that inspires you and let me know how it turns out.

I have had a few people inquire about the sizes of all these tiny rectangles, so I am editing this post to include the measurements.
– To create the base of the card, use a half-sheet of cardstock folded to 5-1/2″x4-1/4″.
– Layer on top of that a piece of coordinating c/s cut to 5-1/4″x4″.
Now for all the tiny rectangles…
– You will need four pieces of c/s cut to
– To layer on top of those, you’ll also need 4 pieces of coordinating DSP cut to 1-1/2″x2-1/8″.
The greeting layer is a 2-1/2″ square of c/s topped with a 2-1/4″ piece of c/s that has been stamped with the greeting.
I am sincerely honored for the interest in my card and appreciate those who took the time to ask.
I originally built the card from the base up and adjusted my measurements as I was building the card so that it was pleasing to my sense of proportion.
It was relatively simple to put together once all the parts were cut.
I hope this will help anyone who wants to give this a try. The tiny pieces of DSP and cardstock for the rectangles on this card is also a great way to use up some of your smaller scraps.
