Harvest Birthday

Welcome back!  It is the start of a new week and I have chosen to keep it simple.  That is Clean and Simple for a quick Birthday card.

I was inspired by the list of elements found in the Festive Friday (#119) challenge, the theme from the Seize the Birthday (#248) challenge and the inspiration photo from the Facebook Joy of Sets October fun challenge.

Here is the result: 



  • Card Base: (8½” x 5½” scored at 4¼”) Crumb Cake cardstock.
  • Background Panel: (3¾” x 5”) Very Vanilla cardstock.
    • The panel was die-cut with one of the dies from the Deckled Rectangles Dies set.
    • The sentiment, Happy Birthday, from the Forever Friendship stamp set was stamped with Crumb Cake ink.
  • Focal Image – Wheat Grass: Soft Suede cardstock scrap.
    • The Wheat Grass was die-cut with one of the dies from the Harvest Dies set.
    • The Stems were gathered, wrapped with and tied in a bow using Linen Thread.

And that was that.  Very minimalist yet a great gender-neutral birthday card.

Thanks for spending some of your time with me today.  Cheers,  Jolanda.

For fun, I was also inspired by these additional CAS challenges: The Male Room (#167), Just Us Girls (#653), Addicted to CAS (#230), and CASology (#408).  Theme challenge: Make My Monday (#185).  Tools challenge: Happy Little Stampers October Dies.  Layout Only: AAA Cards (#225) as I have nothing in my stash related to Gnomes.

  1. I love this elegant card Jolanda – it’s CAS but there’s lots of lovely detail in the deckled edge of your panel and the gorgeous wheat silhouette tied up with twine. Thank you for playing with us at Addicted to CAS! Vicky x

  3. A super simple card, very effective. You may not have had any gnomes, but it would have been nice to see you keep your design to 1/9th as that was our challenge. Thanks for entering your card and hope to see you again at AAA Cards.
