Combine yellow and orange for a bright and cheery birthday card.

I picked 5 different pieces of yellow and orange card from Papermill Direct, with different textures and finishes. I used a die to cut out some slices, then arranged them on a panel of thin paper.

Once I’d adhered all the pieces, I trimmed down the panel and added it to a card base.

Next, I die cut a circle of white card and adhered it to cover the area where the card slices meet, trimming away the bottom edge.

The circle gives a nice large space for a sentiment. I used the same yellow and orange card to cut out letters and numbers to make my sentiment. I layered them up for dimension, then adhered them to the circle to finish.
