5 Days of Birthday Cards – Day 1

I was looking through my stash of cards and I realized that I was really low on birthday cards so I’m going to have a series of birthday card to showcase.  I will make 5 different birthday for this series.

Today’s card is a male’s birthday card.  I love the colors and the shapes that are on this card.  I’m using a lot of different products on my card that are new in my craft corner.

Take a look:

Male Birthday Card Front

The horizontal stripes were made with a new die cut from Papertrey Ink called Stripes Horizontal.   When I was finished with the front of the card I was wondering what will I add to the inside.  And here is what I decided.

Inside mistake

Take a look at that.  Can you believe I made such a big mistake!!!!  I could not believe it.  I wasn’t paying attention and stamp the image upside down.  How could I???  What was I going to do? At first I decided to just not show the inside but I really want to use this card so what can I do to fix this mistake.  Take a look at how I made a come back.

Inside Corrected

I decided to use what I learned in the Insiders class and brought the front of my card to the inside of the card.  All I did was turn the square image 90 degrees for a different look.  I just love it!!!  The card came out so nice.

My mistake caused me to really pull from my creative hat and it made the card pop.

I hope you enjoy this card as much as I do.  Just click on the images below if you want to purchase them.
