Happy Friday Everyone!
Tonight's post is going to be a quick one, but I plan to write some other posts this weekend. The
inspiration for today's card came from a blog that is filled with ideas that I am dying to try. The blog's address is http://creativepad.typepad.com/ and Carolina is the blogger for that site.
You can see Carolina's card if you click here and scroll down until you see a valentine. I can see all sorts of possibilities for that technique, but for today I created the birthday card that you see here.
I put a small sheet of white tag in the dotty embossing folder and ran it through my Cuttlebug. Then I used a one-inch circle circle punch to cut the white circles. I used a 1.75" scalloped circle punch to create the red circles. I used a Fiskars Rectangle hand punch to punch a hole in each of the circles and then threaded a piece of ribbon through each hole. I put some Scor-tape on the back of the ribbon so that it will stay in place and won't flip over.
The ice cream cones are buttons that my friend Toni gave me. Thanks, Toni! I think they are adorable. I used glue dots to attach them to the circles. "Happy Birthday" is stamped from a clear stamp from a Hampton Arts set of stamps.
Expect to see other cards that use this format as it's quick, easy, and appealing.
Talk to you soon.
