What better way to celebrate than with a Birthday Challenge?? (And who doesn't need a steady supply of birthday cards on-hand, anyway??)
A few disclaimers before I show you the goods:
- I love and try to embrace the whole "Clean and Simple" thing, but am discovering it's not my natural "go-to" style. (Someone asked me to "label" my style a couple of weeks ago and the best I could come up with is -- wait for it -- "Less is... not enough!" Haha!
- As a scrapper-turned-card-maker, I have found myself more and more retuning to my own hand-writing for sentiments lately, rather than stamps. So the sentiment you are about to see is my own writing, and in the interest of making my cards more personal, I embrace the flaws and inconsistencies! (Although I have to say, I got quite a kick out of my mom telling me she loved my "font!")
Ok, enough of that! Here's my card:
Pretty darn simple (for me! Ha!) and (almost) a one-layer card. I die cut the bows using this set from Memory Box, first in colored cardstock, then into my card face. I inset the colored bows in the negative space on the card front and then drew in the presents by hand. A bit of copic-coloring and a few dots of Rock Candy Stickles and voila!
Thanks for stopping by! I appreciate you visiting and would love to hear from you! Tell me this: what name would you give to describe your crafting style??? :)
