Papertrey Ink Birthday Card

Hello everyone, and a warm welcome to Bobbkat who is a new follower this week.

I hope you are having a good weekend and getting in some crafty time. Thank you for all your good wishes whilst I was feeling poorly - it really cheered me to read them, and I am feeling much better now. I don't think I have mentioned that my husband has started a gardening blog and if any of you are also interested in spending time in your garden, you may find something to interest you  here. He is very new at it and feeling a bit lonely over there so I am sure he would appreciate your visit.

I have just made a card for a good friend who is having a significant birthday this week. One that has a zero on the end. And she is so not looking forward to it that she has arranged to be away from home for the week! Not the time to make a card with my number dies then.

I came up with this one

I used my Silhouette Cam to cut the scallop edge and the rest of the cuts were with various PTI dies and the stripe impression plate. The stamps were from 2012 Birthday Tags and Birthday Bash Sentiments. I hope she likes it. 

Thanks for stopping by

  1. Hi Carol, I feel sometimes a person does not like to see their age plastered all over a card and your card is so pretty and no age on display, so discreet. Love the layout and design.

    Glad to hear you are on the mend. Take care.
