Happy Birthday Allie

Birthdays for teenagers are always fun and full of surprises, and it is very easy to get caught up in a cutie card, but for a simple card that is not to young, and not to old , I thought this would do for my teenage cousin.

It's a gate card using paper from the All Seasons Recollections pad from Michael's. I used dark pink card stock for the gate card and inked the edges with black ink.  I used a strip of the dark pink card stock and a scalloped circle,  from a Child's Year Cricut Cartridge on page 59 under tag, as a band to close the card. The heart with wings is from a stamp set I bought at , i didn't keep the packaging so I can't recall who made it.

On the inside of the card I used 3 Cricut cartridges for the cut outs. I used Spring Holiday Cards Cricut Cartridge for the little heart faces on the left panel.
 I also used green glitter card stock from DCWV The Glitter Card stock Matstack for the mats on the panels. I used A Child's Year Cricut Cartridge for the right panel balloons, you can find them on page 29 under icon. I made the pocket out of scraps I had  left over from making the gate card and  for the  tag that has Happy Birthday  stamped on it, I used Once Upon a Princess Cricut Cartridge on page 59. 
I cut out tons of these tags as they fit perfectly for my sentiments. 
The envelope is made out of the same paper as the card.

The back of the card is simple with the same heart paper used on the front, insides and for the envelope. Here is the tag again, used to for my mark. 

The card was simple, nice and fast, perfect for a teenage girl. Filled with a gift card and a Happy Birthday wish.
