For the card front I made sure that I used the top left corner of one of the papers that I particularly liked and in order to do that, I had to make this a very large card, in fact a size A9 which is 8.5"x 5.5". I used a Silhouette Amercia "Happy Birthday" file that I altered by adding some flowers to it and designed a mat to go behind it. I also heat embossed the "Happy Birthday" three times and added some Swarovski crystals for some bling!
Here is a close-up of the "Happy Birthday":
Here is an inside view. I designed a "pocket" in Silhouette Studio, to hold a note that I wrote to Nicole, along with some trim!
