We think so too! This cute card kit can be made into several kinds of cards: birthday, best wishes, thinking of you, etc. Whether you use this kit or one of the many others, it is so easy to create a beautiful card in minutes. The kit comes with a separate sheet of printed card weight paper and several die cuts that can be used individually or layered for more effect. Add more embellishments, or not; it’s up to you.

   6. For the inside overlay, place small amounts of glue on the black portions of the flowers so it doesn’t show through. Punch out the "Happy Birthday" die cut and attach to card.

Tip:

The mirrored paper is very shiny so be careful of fingerprints! The silver mirror paper in this line would make an excellent mirror in a project.
