I made more cards this weekend! Woo hoo!
I was so excited to get down to some business! I made 2 new cards.
The first is a birthday card. I wanted to use some DSP to make a ribbon for behind my birthday label. I just cut a strip of Stampin' Up paper and cut a V shape at one end. I used MFT dies to create the Happy Birthday label. (all of the paper is Stampin' Up) I decided to jazz up the label with some buttons that were threaded with embroidery floss. For some dimension, the label is popped up with foam tape dimensionals.
To jazz up my background I used Papertrey Inks circle background stamps to stamp the top portion of the card. I still felt it was too plain, so I used one of papertrey inks edgers border dies to cut the bottom edge of the card, and I layered some dark purple paper behind.
What do you think? Do you also find yourself making multiple cards with similar paper when you have it out? I would like to hear how you tend to create.
