I am going to admit something awful that I keep doing...
sending Birthday cards late and not at all.
Especially at the end of the year.
It is soooooo...silly!
Here I am a Craft Coloring Card woman who loves to create cards.
My promise this year to challenge myself to send or give
Birthday Cards to all 26 (yes, I counted) family and friends on time!
Speaking of challenges.
I thought why not start the year off with 2 challenges!
Here is my first Birthday card for the year.
|Square it is!|
Top 2 Tools I used to craft this sentiment:
Inkadinkado Stamp Placement - placed the stamp straight on the velum
EK Success 1 1/4 Square Paper Cutter - created the V on the end
If only you could feel the dot paper, the paper has a felt like texture.
Copic Sketch Markers were chosen to complement the color scheme on the dots.
|Yes, that is our Christmas Tree reflecting in the window.|
Who is the first Birthday card recipient?
Our daughter Brenda!
