Happy BIRTHDAY


Hello and good morning!  I've been on a stamping roll lately and hopefully the creativity will keep flowing.  I miss posting cards for you on a regular basis, so it's nice to get back into the creative swing of things.  I have a card using a fun die cut technique using strips of paper to fill the image.  I attached 1/4" strips of card stock directly next to each other on a sheet of computer paper, and then cut it with the Happy Die-namics, giving me this really fun and happy stripy sentiment.  I cut out the die again in some Grout Gray card stock and then laid the colored sentiment right inside the negative die cut image.  Then I could stamp the 'birthday' right over the top of it all.  You should give this technique a try too!  I adore the look and I'll have to remember to do this again.


Thanks so much for stopping by!
