A birthday card for a young girl...

Did you see my recent post about the Envelope Punch Board? If not, you can check it out here. On that post, I explained how I made some faux-rickrack with the Punch Board. Here is a card on which I used that faux-rickrack:
I layered the rickrack to reflect the pink and yellow in the DSP. The image was colored with my ProMarkers and cut out with a Spellbinders die (the scalloped oval behind it, too!). The sentiment was computer-generated and cut out with a La La Land folding banner die. The decorative corners were cut with a Lifestyle Crafts die.



I love the dimension of these banner dies. I created a word file that prints the sentiments out in a slight arc, and I print a whole page of them at a time. I cut a banner out of vellum to use as a guide to mark where I need to place my die to cut each sentiment out correctly. That makes it super easy to cut out the sentiments, even though I can't see through the dies.










The inside was kept pretty simple with a stamped sentiment and 4 of the Lifestyle Crafts corners.

This was a quick and fun card to make. I love having the option of creating my own rickrack to coordinate with the papers on my cards.

Again, if you want to know how I made it, just click here.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.
