There is something great about birthdays. I don’t care how old I get… I love celebrating my birthday… my birth week… my birth month! LOL
But honestly, you know what I love more than celebrating me? Celebrating my friends and family!
What better way to celebrate a birthday than with a card? Of curse you think that’s a great idea… that’s why you are here, right!?!
Well, then… on with the show!
Simple, yet stunning. This card is perfect for the beginner stamper. It features the Dandy Garden Designer Series Paper which is gorgeous an doesn’t need any thing to hide it.
Here is a peek at the inside
Simple layering adds interest but is quick and easy.
Maybe you need a little more. Same card base, same Designer Series Paper… same sentiment. But, this card has been stepped up just a hair for the more casual stamper. The Oval Occasions Stamp Set is perfect when paired with the Double Oval Punch. In fact, the two were designed to compliment each other and can be found bundled together in the 2021 Jan-Jun Mini Catalog.
… the inside was stepped up just a hair as well.
That lovely Bumble Bee striped paper is also from the Dandy Garden paper pack. In addition to a couple additional layers, I added a little bow using the Bumble Bee Gingham Ribbon, a couple Bumble Bee dots from 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dots, a small Bumble Bee dragon fly punched using the Dragonflies Punch… and just so that I can add the word additional one more time… I tossed on a couple of the cute little Ladybug Trinkets for additional interest just for you avid stampers.
Here is the inside just in case you were wondering how I stepped that up even more!
That is all I have for you this month! It is time to hop along…
