Greetings my stamping friends. Today, Saturday, January 12, is my Mom’s 79th birthday! We gathered as a family last night at Olive Garden (Party of 11!) for a pre-birthday celebration. I got to spend some time with my sister, her daughter and granddaughter from Lake Conroe/Katy area who drove up for the weekend. The highlight of the evening is when young Olivia kept calling Uncle Steve “Rhonda”, who is his wife and one of my other sisters!
Of course I made my Mom a birthday card and since she has it I can now share it with you all as today’s project:
For this project I let designer series paper do most of the work for me. I have a confession to make. I buy designer series paper — a LOT of designer series paper — but I tend to not use it once I have it. It’s always so pretty that I hate to cut it; then I will obviously run out of it if I use it and (with the exception of a few packs) they do not carry over from year to year. So this year I have decided I WILL use it on almost all of my projects.
Here are the Stampin’ Up! products that were used in the design of this project which can be added to your shopping cart by clicking on the thumbnails below:Product List
Did you notice that I used TWO products that are available for FREE during Sale-a-Bration? The Botanical Butterfly DSP and the Organdy Ribbon are both FREE each with a $50 purchase (before taxes and shipping)! Also a cool tip to share is that the Butterfly Duet Punch will punch out butterflies from several of the sheets of the Botanical Butterfly DSP which made today’s project super quick and easy.
If you have any questions regarding the design elements of this card, do no hesitate to ask. I happily share my instructions for FREE.
Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you leave here inspired to put stamps to ink to paper. Until next time, stamp on my friends.
