Today is my sister, Emily’s birthday. It is a BIG birthday for her. It is one of those birthdays that end with a zero. Tomorrow I am going to visit her along with my other sister and I can’t wait. First of all, I haven’t seen her in a while (since July) and secondly, she lives somewhere warm (and hopefully sunny). My mother will also be there so the four Bowers girls will be together. That could be dangerous! Just kidding. We have fun together and I am looking forward to seeing them all again. We are spread out all over the country so usually we only get together at weddings.
Happy birthday, Emily! I hope you have a terrific day!
I made this card using a card sketch I found on Pinterest. I probably should start saving these challenges so I could show you what the original sketch was. In any case, it used Designer Series Paper on a diagonal which I thought was a cute idea. I used the All Is Calm Specialty Designer Series Paper from the Holiday Catalog. I love the colors in this paper. They are so soft yet wintery.
The stamp set I used is also from the Holiday Catalog. It is a Photopolymer stamp set called Cheerful Tags. It matches the Note Tag Punch which is also in the Holiday Catalog. These will come in very handy with the Christmas Season coming up. You can use this set to tag all your packages. The snow flakes on the tag are from the Photopolymer stamp set called Holiday Home.
The stamp set called Festival of Trees is a great set to use for your Christmas cards but it can also be used for everyday cards too! I love it when a stamp set has more than one use especially when it is supposed to be a Christmas set. You can really use this one year round so you get more for your money. The Festival of Trees stamp set in the Holiday Catalog.
The sentiment on this card comes from the stamp set called Yippee-Skippee. This set is in the Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog. The colors I used are Wisteria Wonder, Coastal Cabana, So Saffron and Wild Wasabi.
I know it is not summer. It is not even close to being Spring but I think you can use flowers year round. I used the stamp set called Beautiful Bunch to make this card. It has a matching punch called Fun Flower so you don’t need to cut it out by hand (because we all know how much I love doing that!). I think I must have failed cutting in Kindergarten because I am just not very good at it. No worries though! Stampin’ Up! makes so many matching punches, Framelits and Thinlits that there is no need to hand cut anything! Perfect!
The Open Sea stamp set is one of those sets you can use for a masculine birthday card. I don’t know if men really care too much about cards unless, of course, they have money or a gift card inside it. I still try to make them anyway. It does let the person know you are thinking about them even if they don’t really care for cards.
My husband is a sailor and he tries to teach me all these nautical knots. I do really well at making them until the next time. By then, I have completely forgotten how to do it and he has to start all over again. I used Cherry Cobbler Bakers Twine to make this nautical knot for this card. Here is a close up of it.
It came out pretty cute, don’t you think? Rob will be so proud of me when he sees it. I just hope he doesn’t ask me to show him how to make it because I have already forgotten! I know. I am hopeless.
This is a quick and easy Christmas Card you can make using a Photopolymer Stamp set from the Holiday Catalog called Festival of Trees. It has a matching punch which is always awesome! It keeps getting better because you can buy both and save 15%. I also used the 2 1/2″ and the 2″ Circle Punches to make this card. The sentiment is from Cheerful Tags and the Designer Series Paper is called Trim the Tree Designer Series Paper Stack. It is a pack of 48 sheets of paper with 12 different designs. If you don’t like one side, you can turn it over and use the other. This Designer Series Paper is also in the Holiday Catalog.
