Birthday Blog Hop

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MONICA!!!



I hope you are having a wonderful day and that all your wishes come true. Thank you for inviting me to be part of this amazing Design Team. I love you girl!!



If you came from Lisa's Blog you are on the right track, if you are visiting me today or got lost in the hop you can start by visiting Monica's blog.


For today, I made this cute card in honor of Monica. I wanted to use this pop-up birthday card from the silhouette store ever since I saw it and here it is. I did replace the Happy Birthday sentiment for a $ stamp I got at Michael's, I like it this way better.


Here is the front of the card, the paper I used is Summer Time by Echo Park, such a cute kit! And I chose the chevron pattern since it is in style. I love how the twine is showing on the front of my card, I added some blog and colored my $ stamp with some copics. The scalloped circle and matting circle were also cut with my cameo as well as the patterned paper and card base.



This is the inside of the card. The original file says HAPPY BIRTHDAY but I thought that gluing the letters one by one was going to be a messy PITA, so I decided to go with another $ stamp. The Happy Birthday sentiment on the bottom is from a stamp I got last year at the Scrapbook Expo when I took a card making class taught by The Rubber Cafe. This is really one of my favorite stamps, I love the font and the quality of it is just incredible.




And this is a funny picture. Since I don't have a designated craft area, I had to improvise and do my best to accommodate my supplies for this project. My cameo is sitting on my dining room floor, lol

  1. What a super fun card. Sometimes I wish my crafting stuff was in my dining room, I bet I can get as lot more done! LOL! I am still trying to learn everything the Cameo can do and loving every minute of it. I used my Cricut machine for the firsat time last night in over a week. I couldn't imagine life with out my new toy. TFS your project, like I said I love it.

    1. Thank you! I couldn't imagine crafting without my cameo, it was missing for more than a week then when I found it the power cord was misplaced. I thought I was going to die!! LOL I had to dig in all the storage boxes we have piled up in the garage and I was thrilled when I found my power cord.

  10. Great card. I love the look. The geometrical lines and twine are great. I can relate to the lack of crafting space. My formal dining room is my craft space. Lol

  31. You are my type of crafter. Why fiddle with gluing letters when you can use a stamp. I love your card with the use of chevron pattern paper and twine. Nicely done!
