Birthday fun

Just popping in for a quick show and tell. I just realized I hadn't shared this card I created to match the adorable bag I got at Bath and Body works to wrap up my sister's birthday gift a few weeks ago. I was inpsired by these beautifully bright colors, don't they just cheer you right up? For the card I used a scrap of patterned paper from October Afternoon, the stamp sets are Just Believe and All Holiday from Stampin Up and ink/cardstock colors are Stampin Up's green galore and yoyo yellow, 2 colors I really don't use that much. I used my new Stampin Up embossing folder to addd texture to the top green galore panel and the punches used are all from Stampin Up. So next time you purchase a pretty gift bag, dig into your stash and see what you have to make a matching card, with the price of cards nowadays you can save quite a bit and besides that who doesn't love a homemade card?!


  1. Cool projects, Lisa! I've really enjoyed catching up on your blog. I've had computer issues for over a month now and my time online is really limited. I've missed seeing your work! :) Hope you both are doing well. Take care. ;)

  2. Love this! It is fun to see how you used your embossing folder. I need to do that. Thanks for the inspiration :)
