The Candy Cane DSP in the Holiday Mini really reminds me more of birthdays than Christmas right now. Maybe because I am more of a traditional girl when it comes to Christmas stuff! But it is still really fun paper to play with :)
I also thought you all might need a break from all things Fall and Halloween, lol! We still have birthdays to contend with all year long and you can never have enough birthday stuff...
I had a vision in my head of how I wanted this to look, but when I started the card, it just wasn't coming together. But I kept plugging along. I had it almost finished when I had the idea to add the birthday sentiment on the 1/2 Designer Label punch! It was the finishing touch that made this card feel "right". It almost looks like a crown perched up there! Who would have thought that mushrooms need a crown?! I guess it's because they are Birthday Mushrooms! And the rhinestones are so much fun!
Ok, now for the recipe....
- Stamps: Funky Four, Teeny Tiny Wishes
- Paper: Blushing Bride, Baja Breeze, Real Red, Whisper White, Candy Cane DSP
- Ink: Blushing Bride, Baja Breeze, Real Red, Garden Green, Soft Suede, Early Espresso
- Other: 3/4" Real Red Polka Dot grosgrain ribbon (retired), Designer Label punch, Rhinestone Basic Jewels, Stampin' Dimensionals, Signo white gel pen
Here is a view with a peek inside. Don't you love the glam of the rhinestones?! They fit so perfectly in the centers of these flowers.
Tomorrow I will show you the card for the other niece, Kaylee! Later this week I will post my new Card Organizer. It is so cool I can't wait to show you all!
