I love crafting, especially rubber stamping. Most weekends I can be found surrounded by paper, rubber stamps and ink.

Hope Your Day Is Wonderful

Hello and Happy Saturday to all,

I had some time in my craft room early this afternoon after finishing my Saturday chores. Mostly laundry and some grocery shopping after being out of town for work last week. I decided to use this week's Freshly Made Sketch to make a birthday card for my stash.

I like to work with these tilted panels and I decided that this time I would use the top panel for my stamped image. This Gina K flower fit perfectly with room at the bottom for the sentiment banner too.

I started with a white card base that is covered completely with a piece of Lawn Fawn patterned paper. Next I cut the white tilted piece and stamped the flower image using a Gina K Slate ink cube and colored the flowers with Copics. After gluing on the scalloped edges, I used foam tape to pop the tilted panel over the card. The sentiment is from the same stamp set and it's heat embossed using white EP. I used paper flowers for the round sketch element at the end of the banner. I haven't used them in years, and these seemed to go well with the stamp and background patterned paper. A few silver pearls for embellishments finishes the front.

For the inside, I kept things simple. I taped off all but one flower in the same image and used it to complement the Happy Birthday sentiment.

Yay, another birthday card for my stash. Always good to have a few extra.

Thanks for stopping in,
