The World Got a Present...
... the day you were born.
Another beautifully simple card!
This was Becky's contribution to our Team meeting Shoebox Swap.
I love the ruffled seam binding around the oval punched greeting.
I groaned when I saw we had to do that - sometimes I'm not a very girly-girl, and ruffles seem to be too much.
But this ruffle was easy to do - simply stamp, punch out the image, then apply SNAIL to the back of it and attach the seam binding pinched into little ruffles.
The hardest part of the whole thing is keeping the ruffling that shows a consistent distance from the image, so it doesn't look lop-sided.
But the nice part about the ribbon and the SNAIL is that you can repeated pick it back up if you don't like it, and reapply it.
We stamped with Versamark ink on the Pretty In Pink CS, then tore a piece of DSP that coordinated with the card stock.
We used one of the new Hostess level Stamp sets from the new IBC called Happiest Birthday Wishes. It's a great set - has 11 pieces, all dedicated to helping you make some awesome birthday cards!
Thanks for stopping by - come back soon!
