A Tale of Two Birthday Cards

A Tale of Two Birthday Cards

Here are two birthday cards I made this month.  The first card was inspired by a card my friend Terry Bolender designed.  I didn’t have time to make the card at her free make ‘n take so I made it myself later, with my own paper.  My friend Stephanie is fashionable, hip, fun and just turned 25 so here is the fashionista birthday card I made.  Sometimes it’s nice to make a card with no stamps.  I used rub-ons for the sentiment:

Have a Fahionable Birthday - Fashionista Card

This next card was for Alicia and it was the first time using paper from the Close to My Heart goodie box.  I also used a new Fiskars punch for threading ribbon.  I blended CTMH paper and ribbon with a Stampin’ Up! button and SU! birthday sentiment because I love the products both companies offer.

About Stephanie Chumbley

Growing up in the shadow of the Space Needle, I loved drawing portraits with a #2 pencil and sometimes a ballpoint pen because I liked the challenge. I collected pens and pencils and enjoyed looking at fonts and logos and replicating them by hand. I was in AP art classes in high school and took some graphic design classes at Seattle Central. While in college, I had a part-time job making signs for Drug Emporium / Longs Drugs with my "Steph Font." In my 20s, I made a lot of invitations for dinner parties and later, when I bought my Cricut Expression electronic cutter in 2008, I started making cards for all occasions. In 2009, I discovered Close to My Heart and enjoyed being my Consultant's best customer... but in May 2011, I finally gave in and became and Independent Consultant. It was a very good decision! :-) Nearly everything I make is given away or sold so others can enjoy some handmade art. I've made over 1,000 cards and projects and this blog serves as a way to share and hopefully inspire others to create projects of their own. Someday I hope to catch up and blog about all the cards I've made.
