Well the last of the birthday cards for January are done.
This card isn't my normal style but after it is all done and said I really love it. It took me all of maybe 30 mins to do.
Here are some dets. about this card.
Background paper is from a great collection by American Crafts, Amy Tangerine, Sketch Book. I know it's an older collection but I never am lucky enough to have the newest and it all still looks beautiful to me.
My banner is from a die I hadn't used until now. It's from Simon Says. Just so you know if your interested in their dies and have not seen them first hand they are great! This die is longer than what you see. I cut it down. oh not the die the paper. It has 8 banners across. They cut so well and I use my big shot.
Hey, hello, knock knock - any body from Paper Smooches reading this???? Did you recognize your stamps on here? ha ha The "I" and the "U" are from your Good Gab set. Here, I will show you.
The I is from the stamp (I Apologize) and the U is from the stamp What's Up.
Now for the best part. I went to my washi supply and didn't have any in neon. What's the next best thing? Post it notes. Cut, stamped and done.. my sentiment.
Since I love this card so much I want to share it with some challenges:
