Today’s card features the Merry Patterns stamp set which is really seen as a Holiday stamp set.  It is also one that you can receive for FREE as a hostess during September and October as a bonus for having a qualifying Stampin’ Up! workshop/order.   (Check out the details here)

I have really enjoyed working with this stamp set and saw the possibility of making it into a non-Holiday Birthday card.  So I added the Better Together greeting set and made the card into this fun and easy specialty fold card in one of my favorite color schemes (Bermuda Bay and Lemon Lime Twist).

You can see how the flap opens to reveal the greeting. . . .but that’s not the end of it!   The Better Together stamp set features greetings for the outside as well as the inside of a card.  The Better Together stamp set also features a few images – one of which is the star that perfectly finishes off the inside of the card.
