This is a week of birthdays! I have friends with birthdays today, tomorrow and Wednesday. It is a good thing I am a stamper! Hallmark would make a mint off of me this week!
Today is my friend, Carol’s birthday. Carol is a club member of mine. She has been in the club for a long, long time. Karin (you know the one who went to Italy) brought Carol with her to a club meeting years ago. Carol is smart. She would rather stay in Club than live in Italy! Carol is very kind and we all enjoy having her as a member.
I made Carol this birthday card using the Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper and the Happy Birthday Thinlits. You know I must really like Carol because I colored the Laser-Cut Paper with markers before adhering it to the Basic Black Cardstock. I have to admit it took a long time to color. At first I was coloring on top of our Stampin’ Up! Grid Paper. Then went I went to adhere it to the black cardstock it really showed how much I missed. A big tip here – don’t color white cardstock on white paper. I had to color it all over again. I am glad I did because I love how it pops on the black cardstock.
The Markers I used are Bermuda Bay, Calypso Coral, Lemon Lime Twist, Mando Melody, Highland Heather and Pineapple Punch.
