Authentic Birthday Thoughts

When I spotted the card that mhuemoe had brilliantly created on SCS I just knew that I had to save that into my faves for later case'ing .... fer' sure ;o)

I also wanted to show off the round tab punch CORNER idea at my April workshops so I put these two ideas together and came up with this card. I should have probably used a darker background cardstock color rather than the Sahara Sand so the Certainly Celery corner idea would have 'popped' more but it does look a bit better IRL.

It seems like this card does use quite a few different stamp sets but for the different groups that I was getting together with thoughout the month they have quite a few stamp sets *wink wink* I know many of them can run home and make this card with what they have on hand now. There are certainly many variations you an do to this card but I think the two things that really help to make this card are the new spiral punch and of course the new round tab punch that you actually use twice!!

As always, here is my recipe for this beaut --- (I share all of my recipes on a 'recipe sheet' with my customers at the beginning of each demo ... it's just one that I print out in Word in a two columns. That way they can take any notes as I am making each card and also have it to take home with them if they so choose...)

Stamp Sets: Stamp of Authenticity, Heartfelt Thanks, Print Pattern BG, French Script BG, Circle of Friendship, Happy Everything, Warmest Regards
Card Stock: Sahara Sand, Apricot Appeal, Certainly Celery, Regal Rose, Naturals Ivory
Stampin’ Pad: Regal Rose, Certainly Celery, Chocolate Chip, Apricot Appeal, Mellow Moss Stampin’ Write Marker, Regal Rose Stampin’ Write Marker
Accessories: 1 ¼” Circle Punch, ½” Circle Punch, Stampin’ Dimensionals, New Round Tab Punch, New Spiral Punch, Scoring Blade

~TFL & Enjoy~
