As promised, here are the two designs of birthday cards that I made last weekend and gave away. February is full of birthdays in our family – 13, 16, 19, and 22 – see the pattern? So I made two of each design in order to have enough for Dad, my brother, my mother-in-law, and my sister-in-law.
Don’t tell Shelli but I used a non-Stampin’ Up ribbon on this next card. It’s hard to see (darn that scanner) but the card has a raised pattern on it from running it through my Big Shot in an embossing folder.
Here’s the inside.
I embossing the paper before punching in out just to add a little oomph. Rather than inking the stamp on an ink pad, I used my markers to get the two colours on the sentiment. Anyway, I must run. I’m off to the Stampin’ Up regional event in downtown Vancouver tomorrow and do require some sleep beforehand.
My next post will feature the swap that I designed for the event. Down to the wire, I thought about it yesterday and not only designed a card front but made some (okay only 21) between noon yesterday and noon today. If I hadn’t worked today I’m sure I’d have made several more as I was whipping through my assembly line right quick by the time I had to head into town.
People who say they sleep like a baby usually don’t have one.
