Happy Moments Birthday Card

I had gotten this Sale-A-Bration set "Happy Moments" and hadn't played with it. I have a few other sets like that. I have them and some of Justify Fullthem I have even put together and have not used them! What is wrong with me? Ok, we won't go into that, we don't have all day here! LOL

I especially wanted this set for the cute flower trio on it and the first image I use is the package!!! Odd, huh? You could even use that image on a Christmas card!

For this card I wanted to keep it simple. Simple is good!

I took a piece of Crushed Curry that was about 3" wide and punched the border. When doing this, pay attention to the front side and back side of the card stock. I punched it on one side and when I went to do the other side I turned it over and now I have raw edges showing. It doesn't show much but I know it's there and of course I had to put the raw edges on the left side so it shows them all instead of turning it around so only a few of the scallops show. DUH!

I layered a strip of "Shades of Spring" decorative paper on top of a piece of white card stock. I tied a piece of Crushed Curry polka dot ribbon around the three layers before I taped them on top of the card.

I stamped the package image using black StazOn ink and colored it in with markers. The center piece was stamped on a scrap of Crushed Curry and cut out. Then it was set in place with Dimensionals. The image piece was layered on top of a piece of Crushed Curry and that was set in place using Dimensionals.

The words came from the set and were stamped on Crushed Curry. I punched them out using the Word Window punch. I was going to wrap it around the edge of the card but it didn't look very nice so I taped it on the front and cut off the excess.

Oh and on the white I used the "Dotted Swiss" embossing folder but I only put the card stock in it part way so I still had part of the card stock smooth.

That's it! There isn't really a lot to making this card. When you use embossing folders and decorative papers there isn't a lot left to do on a card! Gotta LOVE that!

This card is for hubby's aunt! Her birthday is on the 18th. And with this card I am now officially caught up with birthday cards for the month! I still have a few other ones I need to get out but that will have to wait until later in the week. These days are just flying by. I can't believe we are already in the middle of the month! Didn't March just start?

Thanks SO much for visiting today,
