I made this Birthday card last year. I was rather taken with the Yesteryear font and wanted to make something using it and as I needed a Thirtieth Birthday Card I came up with this.
I played with the text and combined it with a chevron pattern and a gingham background paper and I was pretty happy with the retro feel of the finished result.
Here’s a close up of the Text part. It has a white offset between the Kraft card and the gingham pattern to give it some dimension.
If you need a Birthday Card but not a Thirtieth then check out these other cards for some other ideas.
