I used a gray card stock for the card, then I cut a black card stock for the front and used the crop-a-dile Corner Chomper-stub for the corners and put rhinestones in each corner. I cut silver card stock with the Spellbinders Nestabilities Mega Classic scalloped Ovals and cut black card stock with the Spellbinders Nestabilities Mega Ovals and embossed the Thank You-Close To My Heart Stamp and embellished with a rhinestones at the ends. Inside: I used black card stock cut 1 1/2" x 5 1/2" and layered a silver 1" x 5 1/2" card stock on top. For the sentiments. Spellbinders Nestabilities Large Label was used and embossed the sentiment with silver embossing powder as on the front. The sentiment stamp is a Close To My Heart stamp.
The large butterfly is a Spellbinders Nestabilities, and the 3 small butterflies is a punch from Martha Stewart. Squares with the Happy Birthday -(Close To My Heart) are square nestabilities and behind the square is the scalloped square. The lacy ribbon-like card stock was punched with a border punch (punched on both sides) from Martha Stewart. Inside: is stamped with a Close To My Heart stamp and the stripped paper is punched with the same Martha Stewart punch from the front, only punched on one side.
The corners of the card are punched with a crop-a-dile corner chomper-deco.

I'm going to my great-grandson's birthday party today and I made him this card. I sure hope he's into Thomas the Train because I designed my card to my present. I used Sizzlets die cuts for the train, Sizzix Alpha Dots for his name, Sizzix doodledots for the 2, and a Close to my Heart stamp for Happy Birthday. Hopefully a card for a scrapbook.

It will be my Granddaughter's 9th birthday on May 12th and I just had to make her this card. She is growing up so fast and is such a little lady. The last time I asked, her favorite color was pink. I hope it still is, or maybe blue-green. And of course I had to put my "bling" on it, and I know she will like that.
