Hello Stampin’ Friends ~
Today I want to share with you a special birthday card … my sister Eileen’s. I could not share this card earlier because we just celebrated her birthday yesterday.
I used the October 2017 Paper Pumpkin as my base … and then I changed it up to create a unique birthday card. I wanted to use the beautiful “Happy Birthday” on my card and to do so, I had to change out the top layer of my card … this is where I decided to use the Oval Dies to create my opening for a shaker card.
When I cut out my oval, I used the outside of my die as a template to draw an “Old Olive” line around the oval … this was to add a bit more of the Olive color to my card. I used the background, window sheet, sequins and foam strips from the kit for my card.
I added the deer and I did that because I wanted to add a touch of black to pull the color from the greeting and the plaid background. At this point the card was a little masculine so I added the pretty “sparkly” black bow because it tied into the color theme and added a feminine touch to the card. Now … don’t you think that did the trick!
Hope you enjoyed my Paper Pumpkin alternative … a great base to create a very special birthday card.
Thank you for joining me today, I hope your day is a good one.
