I’m sure many of you know someone in your family or a friend that has a December birthday. I know it is really hard for those people because everyone likes to lump their birthdays in with Christmas. So, in the spirit of giving I created this fun card for my son’s teacher Mrs. Hardy. I am so in LOVE with the new bling from the catalog – okay, forgive me for saying NEW, because it is all new to me right now! 7 months of no stamping and I feel like I am on stamping overload! I’m still trying to use as much of my stamping stuff as I can! LOL!
A dear friend sent me a picture of a holiday card found over at Tamara Black’s blog. It was a great starting out place for me and just the inspiration I needed for Mrs. H’s birthday card. All the “presents” are wrapped/stamped with background stamps. Don’t you just love those mini background stamps?
Stamps: A to Z, Dot,Dot,Dot, Solid Stripes, En Francais, Monogram Sweet
Papers: Pretty in Pink, Basic Black, Whisper White
Ink: Jet Black Stazon
Accessories: Basic Rhinestones, Whisper White Satin Ribbon
Tools: Snail Adhesive, Boho Blossoms Punch, 1-3/8 Square Punch, Paper Snips, Sticky Strip, Needle and Thread, Itty Bitty Bits Punch Pack, Decorative Label Punch, 1-1/4 Circle Punch
Techniques Used: I gathered the ribbon with needle and thread and secured with Sticky Strip behind the Basic Black layer of cardstock.
I hope the next time you decide to design a December birthday it doesn’t contain Holly, Christmas trees or wreaths and comes in other colors besides green and red!
