Birthday cards with just a little matching "something"
Can't believe that it's been two weeks since I posted anything! It's that time of year when everything starts to gain momentum before the extra busy Christmas season. School holidays are nearly over and there are always alot of "Birthdays" this time of year as well! I made these two birthday cards for friends and just wanted to make a little something extra to go with their cards so one has a matching bookmark and the other a post-it note holder. The one with the embossed Manhattan Rose in Cherry Cobbler was inspired by Mary Fish ( a talented US demo) who had used the new Coredinations card stock and embossed and sanded the image - very effective! Take notice of the lovely 3/8" Stitched Satin Ribbon on this one too because Stampin' Up have a great special this month - for every $60 spent in product orders you can get a free roll of this great ribbon and it is available in the five different new In-colors - Gumball Green, Midnight Muse, Primrose Petals, Rasberry Ripple and Summer Starfruit. I have three of them but am stoked that I will be able to get the rest for free when I place my next order! Cheers for now and try and keep cool today it is supposed to be very hot and windy.................Sue :)
