Birthday Cards

Every once in a while I have a Birthday Card class over at my home...It's a great chance for me to catch up and make sure I have some cards on hand, rather than run down into the basement and "rush" making a last minute birthday card before the mailman stops by. Sound familiar?!

We make 5 cards in all but these were my favorite two of the batch...


Stacy, another Angel, is really talented and I love her style so when I saw this card of hers, I thought it would work super well with the new set, Open Presents, from The Angel Company.


For this card I used Linear Sentiments again - it's one of my favorite new stamps. New to me but it has been around for a while.

Quick tip: When working with Tombow markers, IF you decide to use the blender pen, blend one color and then go in and add the other colors. Here I colored it all in and then decided to blend it a bit...thus my red somehow pulled into the tan. It's more glaring in the photo but I may just end up redoing the present because it's driving me nuts!
