Happy Birthday DIL!!!
This is the birthday card I made for my sweet DIL! (Happy Birthday Keri!) I like to put lots of color on things, and needed to use up some of my scraps, so I found five pretty colors, cut out the banner strips on my Fiscars paper cutter, placed them all next to each other in my happy birthday embossing folder and embossed them all together! I cut a black card base and glued the strips on leaving just a bit of a space between each one to help make the embossing stand out a bit more. The little white shape was something that was in my shapes folder so I decided I would just use it, even though it is white! I inked the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Inks (black) and glued it on. On the inside I used a liner that is white with little colored speckles throughout, like that tissue paper you can buy with sparkles on it...you know which one I mean, right? Right.....? :) I used a Stampin' Up stamp "From the minute you begin it-Hope your day has fun things in it!" and put that on the inside. All done! It was fast and easy and I love the colors! Hope you like it too! Have a wonderful day and thanks so much for stopping by!
