Happy Birthday

Hey Ya'll! I hope you've been eating lots of candy over the weekend! I had a few pieces, but honestly, I've been snacking on mine since I bought some last week! haha

Anyway, I'm sharing another birthday card with you. Remember, I have a few birthdays to catch up on. I'm still needing to do the shipping part! It's really sad considering I have a postal stamp printer in my studio too! I'll get to it...one day!

Check out all that texture on that embossed cardstock. I really liked the way that pattern is one of the main features, allowing my simple layout to pop. It's a super easy and quick card; here's how I made it!

  1. On purple cardstock, emboss it, then round corners. Add ribbon treatment and button, then adhere to A2 black card base.
  2. Stamp frame and sentiment on rustic white cardstock, then adhere to card front

Stamps :: JustRite - baroque nested frames & occasions
Ink :: Tsukineko - memento tuxedo black; Papertrey Ink - plum pudding
Cardstock :: Papertrey Ink - true black, rustic white, plum pudding
Embellishments :: Papertrey Ink - true black satin ribbon, giga guidelines impression plate; Heirloom Keepsakes - vintage flower
Tools :: Spellbinders - GC-001 grand calibur; We R Memory Keepers - corner chomper

Have a great week! Take care!
