Happy Birthday Anita! Today's post is part of a surprise blog hop for Anita. It is her birthday today, and as a surprise all her design teamies made a birthday card. This is the card I made:
I was spoiled this Christmas with beautiful gifts, a lot of them crafty stuff :) How blessed I am! With a few new supplies, I decided to try and incorporate them. I got this beautiful washi tape, and HAD to use it. The colour combo is not one I would usually use, so I decided to work with it.
I embossed some grey paper with one of my favourite embossing folders - Cuttlebug honeycomb folder. With some pink art paper I punched the edge with a Martha Stewart punch ( I used this same punch for the border on the inside sheet)
Using my Sizzix Framelits 'Label, Ornate no. 2' I die cut with the largest and 3rd largest die. I cut the smaller shape for an opening, and folded it back on itself. I purposely used double sided paper to show the reverse side. (I normally can't stand to use double sided paper as I feel it's such a waste to hide one side when it's stuck down!)
I stamped the sentiment onto some white board, and die cut it out. I got some pink bakers twine and threaded through the tag die cut, and also looped a charm through it.
For the bottom right hand corner, I added three buttons and a flat back pearl, in colours to complement the card.
