I just can't get away from birthday cards!! Here is a card that I originally started for the Simon Says Stamp Friend blog hop a couple weeks ago, but just never liked how I finished it, so I didn't put it up for the hop, and put it on my desk for later. I took it apart three times and put it back together a different way each time(always trying to fit it into or onto a heart like I did with the other three for the hop). Yesterday, I simplified and I was finally HAPPY...get it?!...
I used the Simon Says Stamp Stained Glass Love stamp/die set to make this sentiment. I LOVE using these letters with patterned paper...gives them such a fun look!! I stamped and cut the letter pieces with a scissor. I adhered them to a stamped and die cut "HAPPY". I added tiny black hearts and glossy accented them. I tied three die cut heart balloons to the sentiment and popped it up on a black gingham strip with "BIRTHDAY" stamped below it. All were adhered to a card that I had embossed with my go-to favorite thing right now, burlap!
Here's a close up...
Rainbows and birthdays are just so much fun, I never get tired of putting them together...they make ME happy:)!!! Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa
What a lovely CAS card though I know it took some time to make so simple look so great. Wow! Cutting out all those interiors for the letters. I have been looking for ideas for simple birthday cards and this is a good one. I'll probably just color in my letters though.ReplyDelete
So glad you got it all arranged the way you wanted it. Your design is wonderful and I love all that colorful gingham!ReplyDelete
Awesome card, Lisa. I like the version you settled on and can't imagine it being done like the other three cards for the blog hop. Thanks for the inspiration.ReplyDelete
