Happy Birthday

2/29/20 Spotlight Winner at A Perfect Time To Craft Open Challenge!

Hi friends! Hope your week is off to a great start! I have a pretty birthday card to share today that features a CAS panel popped up on colored foam! I love adding colored foam beneath a focal image so there’s just a hint of color peeking out from around it.


I created the card base and trimmed down the background panel. I stamped and heat embossed the floral swag image, then colored the image with bright markers and put it off to the side while I trimmed a piece of teal-colored foam to go behind the background panel and cut the inside panels. I adhered the focal image to the foam, adhered the piece to the card base, and then added a few pearl embellishments.


I embellished the inside panel with a strip of teal cardstock, stamped the inside sentiment and layered the panel on teal cardstock.

And one more look… I couldn’t be happier with how this turned out! And I always need more birthday cards in my stash! ;)

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
