Confetti Wishes Birthday Card

My wonderful brother is having a birthday on July 6th and in typical Tara fashion, I am making him a card that will arrive probably a week late.  It wasn't my fault this time!  I've been sick!  Okay, usually it's my fault.

I just bought the Confetti Wishes paper pack and it is really cute.  There's enough variety in the paper that you can make cards for guys, girls, and kids.  It's all in how you put it together. Here's some shots of the outside, inside, and matching envelope that I did.


I tried some techniques with this card that I've never used before.  The whole thing was an experiment really.  It all came together quite well in the end and I think it turned out great!  More importantly, I know he'll love it.  Good thing...since it will be belated and all.   

I did a video tutorial with this card as well.  It's over on my YouTube channel.
