Sending Birthday Wishes

Hi everybody! It’s Thursday already and I hope you’ve had a fabulous week! We only had one appointment this week and it was to get shots for two of our inside feline kids. I keep the inside and outside kitty appointments in the same planner I keep Ed’s and my appointments in, lol, since there are quite a few to keep up with! ;) Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you – I really appreciate your support! I’ve popped in today to share an awesome Tape Runner DT inspiration project! Y’all, this card literally took five minutes to make. Yep, you read that right… five minutes… albeit I already had the floral die cut and the foiled sentiment made. It would have taken a little longer had I needed to make those as well. So let me side-track for a minute… I got the four sets of PinkFresh Studio coordinating washi tape and die sets last week that I’ve been wanting, and I’m in love! They are ah-maaazing and so fun to play with! I die cut whole sets at once so they’re ready to put on cards. And the foiled sentiment is one of many that I made a while back when I got my Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil System.

The panels and floral die cut were adhered with Retractable Tape Runner. Wet glue was used only to adhere the narrow sentiment strip and gemstones. Using the Papertrey Ink Noted: Scalloped A2 Die Collection, I cut a standard size A2 stitched scalloped card base and stitched rectangle layering panel from CutCardStock Basis 80# White cardstock. I had already applied the PinkFresh Studio Joyful Bouquet washi tape to a piece of Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock (heavyweight for stability) and then cut the florals with the coordinating PinkFresh Studio Joyful Bouquet die set. I adhered the largest bouquet to the stitched rectangle layering panel. I had already used the Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil System, Spellbinders Glimmer Gold Foil and Spellbinders Mini Everyday Sentiments Glimmer Hot Foil Plate & Die Set to create a variety of sentiments on Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 80# cardstock. I chose the sentiment from the bunch that I wanted to use on this card and adhered it across the bottom portion of the bouquet. The finishing touch was adding several gemstones from the Trinity Stamps Amber Glow Embellishment Mix using the Trinity Pick-Up Stick.

I cut a second stitched rectangle layering panel from CutCardStock Basis 80# White cardstock using the Papertrey Ink Noted: Scalloped A2 Die Collection and adhered it to the inside of the card base. I’m donating this card to the Bearly Arts Cards for Cubs project so I left the inside blank with plenty of room to write a custom message.

And one more peek… I’m smitten with this super simple card and can’t wait to make more using the Retractable Tape Runner to assemble them! So clean and easy to use!

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
