Happy Birthday

Howdy everybody! Happy Monday – I hope you had a fabulous weekend! I’m proud to share that another one of my projects was Featured over at Scrapping4fun Challenges several weeks ago which scored me another guest gig – this time for Challenge #215 – Tags or Add a Tag on Your Creation! I love adding tags to my card fronts so I really enjoyed making this one! I had the Spellbinders Wild Hello June 2021 Kit of the Month in my stash so I pulled it out and decided to loosely CASE one of the card samples in the kit that I fell in love with. I used cardstock, a line die, patterned paper, die cut shapes (one being a tag which was in line with this challenge) and chipboard embellishments from the kit to create a birthday card.

I cut a standard A2 size top-folding card base from white cardstock in the Spellbinders kit along with a layering panel and strip from the patterned paper. I die cut the Happy Birthday line sentiment from black cardstock and adhered it to the seam of the patterned papers. I arranged a couple die cut shapes and several chipboard embellishments which completed the card front.

I cut the inside panel from white cardstock in the kit and embellished it with leftover strips of patterned paper and cardstock. I added a couple die cut shapes and layered the panel on black cardstock.

And one more look… totally loving how this turned out! The tag takes center stage with the die cut frame, and then comes the die cut sentiment and those chipboard embellishments! Love, love, love!

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
