Birthday Cards for Towanda's

Evelyn Couch: Towanda! Righter of Wrongs, Queen Beyond Compare!
Ninny Threadgoode: How many of them hormones you takin', honey?
   - Fried Green Tomatoes (1991)

Hey chickie ladies! It's Linda McClain again. We're celebrating birthdays this month at CutCardStock.com, and this time I'm celebrating the birthdays of us Towanda's - those of us who are allegedly past our prime. We may not be younger and faster, but we have better insurance!



That's a reference from the 1991 movie Fried Green Tomatoes, one of my favorite movies of all time. It's about friends, best friends. If you haven't met Towanda, Idgie, Sipsie and sweet Ruth, stop what you're doing right now! Well, okay, read this post first . . . then go get you that movie!


I used a Chicken Wire die as a cover for this card. The Chicken Wire die I used is 4″ wide by 5-1/4″ long.

  • I cut a piece of Brown Bag Kraft cardstock 4″ wide by 5-3/8″. 
  • I scored and folded t at 5-1/4″ so there was just a 1/8″ overhang.

  • I attached the Chicken Wire die cut piece to this small 1/8″ overhang and then embellished it.



The inside of the card is very simple, but it's just fun how it peaks through the chicken wires of the front.


Here are the supplies I used from CutCardStock.com. I'll be seeing you over at Catered Crop. Towanda!
