Happy Birthday Card

Hello and welcome to today’s Paper Pumpkin alternative. I have so many parts and pieces of August’s kit left over, I thought I would continue on….

The base of this card is 4 1/4” x 11” and scored at 5 1/2”. I used thick Whisper White cardstock. the first layer is Merry Merlot cardstock (cut at 4” x 5 1/4”) from the Neutrals collection. I use this collection quite a bit…I embossed that layer using the Big Shot and the now retired Scattered Sequins embossing folder. Use what you have. There is always a new product to substitute, but this one happens to be one of my favorites. The following layers are from the PP kit, including the berries. The sentiment was also stamped in Merry Merlot (I used the “Happy Birthday” from last month’s PP). Everything was adhered with snail or Tombow glue. A little bit of ribbon and bling and I was done!!

If you are interested in any of the products listed above, I am happy to assist you or follow the link below to my online store.

As always, Happy Crafting!! Colleen

Colleen Light Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator and DIY Crafter I love all paper crafting and I’ve been a Stampin’ Up! Independent demonstrator since 2018. Not only do I love the Stampin’ Up products but I am also working towards my quilling accreditation through the Quilling Guild. You will see some of those cards pop up every now and then. I started this latest paper crafting hobby of mine following an accident. I use it as my own form of occupational therapy (we nurses can get creative with our therapies.. haha). What I found was a great admiration for my fellow creative demonstrators and a great sense of community. I especially enjoy sending out my hand-crafted cards. It makes me happy when people tell me they save the cards!! If you are in the United States, I would love to be your demonstrator or have you as a member of my team. Check out the details of becoming a demonstrator at my on-line store (the discounts are definitely helpful). Feel free to drop me a comment! I look forward to working with you.
