The card was easy to put together for these reasons:
a. the birthday candles were already wrapped with the baker's twine (was going to use several weeks ago and changed mind--now am glad because the color mix goes so perfectly with the pre-printed card)
b. the multiple print happy birthday patterned paper is actually a 3-inch section cut from a pre-printed card purchased from Hot Off the Press (Paper Wishes website or catalog to purchase)
c. the scalloped circle opening in the card base was purchased that way from Studio G (purchased at Wal-Mart)
d. stenciled number ruler and 'congratulations' wood stamp made the other decorative touches easy
Wa-hoo for cute, charming, and easy to create!!!
#2 of 3 birthday cards that were quick-to-createThis is an angled view of the cover. Not shown in the bottom right corner is the stamping 'be happy'. Papers are from different sources. Flower-shaped brads are from Hot Off the Press (available from Paper Wishes). the epoxy stickers and jewel stick-ons are also from different suppliers.
Studio G is the vendor for the mauve pink square card, purple ink stamp pad, and the 'be happy' wood stamp.
The embossed card from Studio G plus the sticker embellishments (from different sources) made this a quick-create card. Yea!
Teal and purple ink stamp pads along with the two stamps ('today is the day' clear stamp and 'happy birthday' wood stamp) are also from Studio G.
The tan color flower shaped brad is from Hot Off the Press (available from Paper Wishes).
I've forgotten the source for the patterned paper shown on the inside view--sorry. It's pretty and perfect for the color mix, however.
