Birthday Card

Hope all are keeping warm and comfy in this crazy weather we are having.  School here was closed one day this week because of the cold and delayed opening another day!  Now the temps are going into the 50's this weekend, which is find with me.  Finally, got back into the craft room to make a card.  I have several birthdays coming up and saw this card on Pretty Impact's blog and really liked it, so I decided to case it.  Seldom do I have the same craft items, so I make do with what I have in my stash.


Stamps - Engraved Greetings - SU
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black
Paper - Crumb Cake, Brilliant Blue, Black,Very Vanilla and Real Red - SU
Accessories - Embossing Folder - Vine Street, 1" Circle Punch
Embellishments - Red & White Twine

I used an A2 card size, but changed up my layers to fit my stamp.  I didn't have the stamp set she used, but used my Engraved Greeting set instead.  I liked the idea of the balloon.  I used my 1" Circle Punch and just trimmed it up a bit cutting out an end for the twine to be adhered to.  Have a great weekend.

Thanks for stopping bye,
Nancy, Rachel & Sarah

We're back to sunshine and fairly warm again now that the weekend is over. It's supposed to get rainy again by next weekend, wouldn't you know. I really like the birthday stamp you used, and the Vine St. embossing folder. Good idea for the balloon. I've often wished I had a balloon punch, but your circle worked out beautifully!
