Christmas Birthday Wishes

Today is the birthday of a wonderfully talented stamper and friend who I’m very proud to say is one of my team members. I wanted to make her a special card, but I took so long making it that I didn’t send it early enough and I suspect it got caught up in all the Christmas mail. Happy Birthday Maureen! On this card I’ve used the Infinite Goodness stamp set (free Level 2 hostess set) and Curvy Verses, watercolour paper and the Rose Red Prints Designer Series paper. The new 1" wide double-stitched Rose Red ribbon features here, which is only available in the current Summer mini catalogue (p20). I love using Rose Red so it’s wonderful to have a ribbon that matches the cardstock, paper and ink perfectly. Layered on top is the moss tafetta ribbon, which unfortunately doesn’t photograph too well but looks great in real life. The large scallop rectangle was made with the Scallop Edge punch. I followed this great tutorial to match up the scallops so there is one in each corner of the layer. It was fun to make something non-Christmasy, even though I looooove this festive time of year. Two more sleeps until Santa’s here!

    Thanks for the wonderful card Simone. It is even more beautiful in real life and made me feel so special when I received it in the post. It was so thoughtful to share your time talent and friendship, you continue to amaze me.
