A Perfect Pairings Birthday Card

The "Happy Birthday" from the "Perfect Pairings" set is such a fun font.  I am going to miss this set at the end of the month when the "Sale-a-Bration" is done.

This was a fun card to make too. It's from Terri's very fun Stamp a Stack last week.  We played with the "Going Places" Designer Paper.  I wasn't thrilled with a lot of the images in that paper pack but once I saw what was being made with them I started to like it more and more. Sometimes I think I'm losing my creativity.  I don't see foresee things in papers and stamp sets like I use to.  Perhaps I just need to take a few days off and just do some looking and see what ideas I can come up with on my own. But for today, I have these fun cards to share with you.

We used Lost Lagoon for the base of our card.  I looked in my papers and I have a lot of Lost Lagoon left and that retires in a couple of months.  That means I'd better get in gear and use up as much of those in colors as possible or I will be stuck with them.  Well, not really stuck with them, there are people that will buy them (if you sell them that is!!!).  

We used the Ornate Tag Punch, punched the Very Vanilla card stock and then after sponging the edges we added the thick Baker's Twine.  I really like the feel of that stuff.  We set the tag in place using Dimensionals.  

These were quick and simple cards to make.  I LOVE this layout.  You can use it with any decorative papers and make some quick and beautiful cards.
