Another belated birthday card..

I needed to make another belated birthday card this week. Not sure what that says about me - it could be that I'm getting old and forgetful. I'm hoping, though, that it just says I've been distracted by more important things.

Because I was already late in getting this one in the mail, it had to be a QUICK card to make. I can think of nothing quicker than to use some colorful banners and a favorite embossing folder. In this case, I used the D'vine Swirls embossing folder for the yellow CS and cut the banners by hand.

I printed the sentiment with my computer and cut it out with a Lifestyle Crafts die. I traced around the die and hand cut that piece to use as a mat for the sentiment, since I didn't have another die in the correct size.

A little bit of yellow baker's twine and a couple of flat-backed gems finished the front. The only thing that was popped up on foam squares was the sentiment.

The inside was simple with some of the polka-dotted paper and a single banner. I had a stamp for this sentiment. I only wished I had used some heavier paper/cardstock so that the polka dots didn't show through.  Oh well. Live and learn.

I've got another birthday card that needs to be completed this weekend, so I hope to be able to share that one with you soon.

Thanks for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.
