Spring Birthday Card


Card is 6 1/2 x 5. It is white cardstock and I covered the base with a pretty spring looking patterned paper. Martha Stewart Layered Arches punch was used on the lower edge of the paper. I placed a small piece of green paper under the punched edge.
Needing a Spring birthday card, I used the Cuttlebug Happy Birthday embossing folder on the pink mat. Then I run the white mat through the same Cuttlebug folder trying to line it up with the words on the pink mat. I am pleased with the results of the embossing.
Cartridges:
Walk In My Garden - Rose cut  3 inches
Lacy Labels - White and Green mats cut at 4 inches. This is the last key on the keypad called "Hugs". I only used the mat cuts.
Home Accents - "Corner 1" cut 1 1/2 inches. Two of the cuts were cut using the flip function on my Expression.
Wild Card - inside sentiment - "Love and Joy to you" cut at 7 inches. Was unable to load the photo of the inside.
Martha Stewart inking, MS bow, and buttons in the corners complete the card.

Challenges:
My Sheri Crafts - #50 Spring
Die Cuttin' Divas - #7  Spring - gardening cut
Cricut Cardz Challenge - card for Spring - pink, green and white only
Birthday Sundaes -- Spring Birthday

I will add this card to the Linking party going on at Passionately Artistic.

  2. This was one of those "teaser" posts. The picture really caught my eye when it came up earlier on the blog roll (or whatever that thing is called on the dashboard,) but when I clicked to see it I got that silly "this page doesn't exist" message. Glad I didn't miss it. Very pretty!
