Happy Birthday Paper Canvas Creations Blog!
PCC blog is celebrating its first year in cyberspace this month. In it’s honor I have been busy making all sorts of cards for A LOT of birthdays this summer.
First up is a birthday card for a gal who’s favorite pastime is shopping! I used the Artfully Sent cartridge to cut out the purse panel card and backed each row with a different patterned paper, repeating the bottom and top rows. I personalized the card by adding the recipient’s name to the last purse. I used Doodlebug rub-on letters.
I used the CTMH It’s Better With Friends stamp set and colored it with my Shin Han alcohol markers. I used one of the purse cut outs and some bling to spell out the recipient’s age.
I used the Shin Han colorless blender to make polka dots on her dress.
Now on to the next card…it was for a young lady that was a foreign exchange student and spent a year in Europe. I thought a luggage card with a personalized luggage tag would fit the bill.
I used Graphic 45 Topography paper line and chipboard pieces. I thought that this pattern gave it a “designer” feel.
I stamped the passport stamp from the CTMH World Traveler stamp set using the second generation (or stamping-off) method, so that it was a more subtle background.
I hope you have enjoyed our cards today! Please Like us on Facebook and follow our blog so you don’t miss a thing!
