It's Your Day

Birthdays and surprises are traditional just about everywhere, but not usually combined in a greeting card, right.....unless, of course, it's a wiper card.  Very easy to make with a few extra folds, a bit more adhesive and you can find an excellent tutorial by Beate Johns at Splitcoaststampers here.

As the card opens, up pops something extra...

a little surprise...

My lighting washed out the left side of my image but you get the drift.
I really enjoyed creating this wiper card and plan on doing more of them.

Happy Friday, my friends.  It's almost the weekend!
