Amazing Birthday Card
I did manage to find some time today to sneak in to my craft room and create a card. As I was looking at some of my favorite blogs last night, I noticed that Simon Says Stamp is celebrating their 4th birthday. I thought it would be fun to use the new Happy Every Day stamp set from Simon to create a card in honor of their birthday.
This particular card is a shaker card. It's an easy technique and adds a fun interactive element to the card.
I was also really inspired by a card I saw on the Two Peas site (linked below). I was particularly fond of the gold embossing on vellum. So I went gold for this card. I've always been a gold girl (you'll notice that my wedding ring is gold...and I chose that when white gold and platinum was all the rage).
I've included a video tutorial, as well as links to all the products used in this video, below.
So, tell me. What have you been up to this spring break.
