It’s Your Day!

DAY EIGHT: This is the eighth day of blogging this month. I have so many cards I’ve made and never blogged about, so I’m hoping to make a dent in my collection of non-blogged cards by posting daily.

Today’s featured card is a birthday card I made for my friend Stacey last year. I used some pretty paper from Stampin’ Up! and inked the edges with a soft grey ink pad.Then, I stamped the “It’s your day” sentiment on some white cardstock, cut it down to size and inked the edges. I left space above the sentiment so I could attach some paper flowers, gems and a fancy Stampin’ Up! brad. Next, I mounted it onto some yellow-green cardstock and adhered it to the patterned paper. Before attaching it to a blank, white card base, I wrapped some stretchy grey and white ribbon around the face of the card and tied a bow.

Here’s a semi close-up of the main feature of the card. For some reason, the lighting was awfully yellow.
