Sometimes you need a happy birthday card, sometimes happy anniversary, and sometimes it's happy whole other occasion. Why not create a couple happy (fill in the blank on the inside) cards?
Color My Heart dare uses a paper packet I don't have, "Surf's Up." I used Crystal Blue, Sorbet, and Ponderosa Pine (which are regular-line colors included in the pack) then substituted Honey for Surf's Up Gold. I cut several strips in various widths and glued them to printer paper before cutting with Artiste. Even though the printer paper is thin, it's still two layers of paper so I set my cutting machine gage to full pressure and a slow cut setting. It should also be noted that I recently replaced my blade as I'd been using the one that came with the machine for the past four years. I'd say I got my money's worth!
The only non-CTMH product on these cards are the sequins on the top card and Baker's Twine on the bottom one (Island Indigo from Stampin' Up!).
I already have plans for these cards. I've got a couple teenage family members with birthdays soon. I think the fun and funky look will suit them perfectly.
Until next time,
