Another Birthday Wish!


Here is ANOTHER use for that Build A Birthday Set (that I know you decided you needed after you saw last week’s post.  You’re welcome).

It’s another easy to put together card.


The little banner in the top corner is from the delightful Pretty Petals DSP paper stack.  And it has LOTS of designs so this same layout could be used and you can change the colors to make all kinds of designs.  You can’t really see, but the card base is black, and then I used calypso coral

imageI get asked a lot about making masculine cards.  MASCULINE CARDS is a phrase that really isn’t in my vocabulary.  But, you could easily turn this masculine by changing the colors.  And maybe taking the little bow off the top (use the staple only).  There.  My version of a masculine card.  🙂  Okay, I promise.  I will work on that…

Build a (fabulous) Birthday


I love PARTIES. And decorating for parties and banners and ALL OF IT.  I would LOVE being a party planner when I grow up.  (hee hee).  So, when I saw this set in the catalog, I just knew I needed it.


I LOVE the cake pedestal and the fact that you can build your cake however you need.  And, I need to let you know that I TOTALLY CASED this card.  I cannot remember now from who, but it is not my own.  But, it is too fabulous not to share…. so there.
