Another month has passed and another family member’s birthday has passed as well. I don’t know about you guys, but it seems like there is a birthday every month between my family and friends. There’s some months that I end up celebrating 2-3 birthdays! For me, April and May are the only months that I don’t have to make cards for, but of course I could make Easter and Memorial Day cards if I wanted to. I love that it means I absolutely MUST craft to make a card . Sometimes it’s a little hard to fit it in, but I try to make an effort to make them feel special on their day.
This is the card that I made for my older sister. I used a laser cut wood piece that I had laying around and tried out my new mica powder colors on her card too! I plan on releasing these very soon, but I wanted to test/play with them a little first. The dies that I used were Spellbinders and I got the pack for $10.00 at the rubber stamp event we went to. The flower stamps were in a $0.79 pack that I got from my LSS. Can you believe I found a red rubber cling stamp set for only $0.79!? That was a major score! I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder and peacock feathers distress ink for the background. The paper was an old Prima pad that I have and I can’t remember what it was called, but I want to say Sunflower since that’s pretty much what the entire paper pad was comprised of. Here’s the card:
She really liked it and says she wants to keep it! Of course, that is pretty much the best complement, since us card makers can’t even fathom the thought of a recipient throwing away our crafty gift that took us hours to make and we even were nice enough to use our special secret-stash-hoard items on. Yeah, you know what I mean! I hope you like the card as much as she did. Thank you for stopping by my blog!
