Well I have to say this post is bitter sweet for me as it's my last one for the Jan-Mar DT term is now coming to an end. But you haven't seen the last of me!
With that, here is my card.
I used the WPlus9 Sunshine Layers dies for the panels. The inside panel is from MME and I used the 3x4 die in this set and the pink panel is regular card stock and I used the scalloped die.
I used a piece of scrap card stock and from WPlus9 More Fresh Cuts I stamped the Happy birthday sentiment in Versamark and heat embossed it with Hero Arts white embossing powder. I also used the Scribbles MFT dies and cut them out vellum. In the corners of the card base I used the corner stamp from the LF Blissful Botanicals which is an oldie but a goodie and I used Hero Art soft pool ink just to give it a bit of interest. I finished off the card with a few sequins.
I'm the type that I keep my newest goodies on my desk in a basket but to me as soon as they go in their storage pockets, it's like they aren't new anymore. So just to make it easier to get in and out of the packaging here is what I do.
I take my scissors and I cut the tops off the packaging. So I can take the stamp set out the top and I don't have to deal with the sticky strip that keeps the bottom closed. I normally end up getting that stuck to the stamps as I'm trying to get it back into the packaging.
Nothing fancy but it makes for faster crafting!!
Don't forget to stop by the BRI shop as there is so much awesomeness going on, it's hard not to put everything in my cart and check out!!!!
