Happy Birthday To You


Hey there! Here's a quick card inspired by Loonie Stampers Challenge. I needed a birthday card (which will be delivered about a day late), so I was eager to complete this challenge. It's a super simple and quick design because I did not have too many creative juices flowing.

We had a jammed-pack weekend and are exhausted. I took a nap, but I really could use an extra day of R&R. I hope I can make the video this week, but it may have to wait until next week. We'll see how the next two days go!

Oh yeah, here are some pictures of the twins! Enjoy! I'll share some of the other photos with you when they're completed. Thanks for stopping by!

Card Instructions
  1. Trim pacific point cardstock into an A2 card.
  2. Trim patterned paper to fit top portion of card front and adhere.
  3. Trim kraft cardstock to fit width of card front and about 2" and punch scallop edge and adhere to card front.
  4. Add ribbon, button with twine.
  5. Stamp sentiment.
  6. Round corners.

I read your tweet about upgrading your camcorder. I would highly recommend the Flip video camera. It is so small you can fit it a pocket or a tiny purse. It's so easy to use!

Ashley - I love your card! It may be simple and quick - but I just love the way you used the colors. They are crisp and pop!
