Perfectly Penned Birthday

The only image I have used in this set has been the "thank you" one.  Little did I know there is a very beautiful "Happy Birthday" one in the set as well!! LOL

I thought I would make a card using only a word set.  And yes, it is possible!!!  

This was actually a quick card to make too.  I cut my strips 1-1/2" wide and just ran with the length.  I cut whatever looked right with the words   Here the long strip on the left is 3-1/2" long and the horizontal strip is 3-3/4" long.  

I stamped the words and then trimmed them later.  Normally when I stamp my words and most images I measure the wood block.  But here I didn't have a wooden block, this set is the clear mount type.  So I stamped and then trimmed.  I trimmed this to 3" x 1-1/4".  All pieces have a back layer that is 1/8" larger than the pieces on top of them.  

I used the Lattice texture for the background of the Pool Party piece and layered that on top of a half sheet of Very Vanilla card stock that was folded in half.

And there you have it. A very quick and easy card to make!  And with no image stamping.

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
