Birthday Card

Birthday cards are fun to make . . . .
DETAILS: Real Red, Basic Black & Whisper White cardstock; Basic Black classic ink; Birthday Cuttlebug embossing folder; black&white gingham ribbon; It's Your Birthday stamp set; sticky strip & dimensionals; square punch.

We're all going to a 7 year old's birthday party on a local farm today, so I finished the card this morning. It's tough to shop for a 7 year old boy when my oldest is a 4 year old girl!

I thought I'd show you how I wrapped his present. I found a picnic tablecloth in the $1 spot at Target and thought that would make great wrapping paper for the barn theme. I also used raffia to tie it all together, and I stamped his name on the envelope to finish the package. Although, now that I'm looking at it, I'm afraid it may blend into the table when we get there! ha ha . . . .

For some reason, I'm thinking I may have CASEd this card design, but honestly, I wasn't even online looking at samples when I created it. If it's yours & posted on your blog, I'm sorry! Let me know and I'll give you credit.

Trifold Card & square envelopes

I love making these little cards. They're just so much fun. Most of my idea for this card came from Cambria Turnbow at Stamp a Little Love Baby!

DETAILS: Regal Rose, Very Vanilla, Certainly Celery cardstock; pink grosgrain ribbon; slot punch; Petals & Paisley stamp set; Regal Rose and So Saffron markers; Red Rose ink; Au Chocolat paper.

For the square envelope, I didn't have any on hand, but I did have the large, open ended envelopes. So, I cut them to the size I needed and put sticky strip in the bottom to close it.

Baroque Motifs

These cards are for a swap I'm participating in with stamps from the preview brochure. I got the stamps yesterday and had these done this morning! I just love this new set, Baroque Motifs.

DETAILS: Baroque Motifs stamp set; Pale Plum, Perfect Plum & glossy white card stock; small & large oval punches; mini glue dots; perfect plum and pale plum classic ink; brayer; copper brad; copper cording; whisper white embossing powder; versamark; heat gun.

I stamped the swirl image on glossy white with versamark. Then I embossed it with whisper white EP. When cool, I brayered perfect plum over it all.
