Zesty Birthday Tucked Corner Card

My oldest daughter has a birthday this weekend, and since she loves citrus fruits, I designed a card for her using SU!'s new Sweet Citrus bundle and some fun design paper with lemons on it. I stamped, die cut and embossed the fruit and stamped and die cut the leaves and little "Just for you" sign (that's from a different SU! bundle called Potted Geraniums). I used a Gina Marie stitched circle die as the background for the sentiment and fruit grouping. I fussy cut the "Have a zesty birthday" sentiment after stamping it. I decorated the back, too, and added some fun embellishments to make it special. I even found some citrus stickers to decorate the envelope flap in my stash! 

The fun fold card design comes from Iced Images here: (1) 6x6 Tucked Corner Fold Card - YouTube. I used the measurements from the video to create a Silhouette cut file in Silhouette Design Studio. 

When opened, it looks like this:

As You Like It Challenge: Favorite reason to send a card: I like to send cards for many different reasons, but I think birthday cards are especially fun as they are an excuse to celebrate friends and family and let them know I'm thinking of them on their special day. I also like that there is such a wide variety of birthday themes to choose from: funny, floral, masculine, etc. (2/3; ends 1/25/23)
