Pennant Parade Wish Big Birthday Card

This fun and easy pocket card comes complete with its own banner and lots of big birthday wishes. If you're always on the lookout for great "masculine cards", this hand stamped card is suitable for any age or gender.

For the "pocket" I started with Wild Wasabi card stock, cut in half lengthwise and then scored at 1-1/2" and 5-1/2". (Fold in half at the 5-1/2" score, then fold back the "flap" at the score mark.) The Scallop Edge Border Punch gave the flap a little added interest and coordinates with the scalloped pennants.

The pennants were cropped, using the Petite Pennants Builder Punch, from Early Espresso card stock and Just Add Cake Designer Series Paper. Using the Handheld 1/16" Circle punch, I punched holes for the Baker's Twine to thread through, then tied the twine in a bow atop the pennants.

HIP TIP: Under the flap, I stapled the "front" piece to the "back" piece right next to edge of the card stock on either side. This creates the "pocket". The "flap" conceals the staples and the ends of the Baker's Twine tucked underneath and taped down.

The inner card measures 3-3/4" x 5" and the corners were rounded at the top with the Corner Rounder Punch. I created a tab from Early Espresso card stock using the Round Tab Punch, then added the "wish big" sentiment from the Pennant Parade stamp set which was cropped with the 3/4" Circle Punch. The larger "wishes" sentiment is from the greeting stamp set Heard From The Heart.

Got Big Wishes? I hope they ALL come true!!
