At Cut it Up this time, our challenge is an easy one — Birthday cards!
I made this one for my husband this year:
I used the negative space from one of the stars on the front to add a little interest to the inside of the card. I just used a circle punch to cut around the star, and another one to make a mat, and put a little scrap underneath.
Here it is closed:
I used some ribbon from my stash, wood-themed paper from Tim Holtz, and a Close to My Heart stamp. (BTW, I’m no longer a CTMH Consultant, or even a Jr. Consultant. My title is now “Former Consultant.” I think it’s so funny that they have a title for that!!)
Anyhow — there are two prizes you’ll have a chance to win if you link your Birthday Card to Cut it Up Challenges. Sparkly Sweet Craft Notions by Beckie is offering a May Arts Ribbon Trio, and Scrappy Dew is offering a $15 Store Credit!
And I know you make birthday cards . . .
So why don’t you link yours up? Make sure you check out the other designers’ creations while you’re over there, because they’re pretty awesome!!
