Card for Chloe

Hello Everyone

I just realised there are a few birthday cards I haven't yet shown you - even thought I made them last year!

This is the first for sweet little Chloe, who is my downline Nina's little girl. She is now a big sister, but I made her this card just before her sister Isabel was born.


The card is made with four stamp sets. The main image is from Crazy for Cupcakes and features a few of those adhesive diamontes as sprinkles. The sentiment is from the hostess set Afterthoughts. The background is done with Confetti - currently my most used background stamp option. And finally those sweet little toadstools come from Funky Four, which also has the flowers and leaves that I used on the envelope.

I used the Stampin' Up! cutter kit to create a tear off down the side, so that the edge can be removed and used as a bookmark. With that in mind I used my crop a dile to add a jumbo brad and ribbons to the top of the card.

Back soon with another 'forgotten' card!

  1. All of a sudden, your stamping preference struck me..... U hardly use DPs right..... All the wonders u create are mostly just stamped..... Getting that look even without DPs is something not all can accomplish.... Beautiful creation!!! Hugs)))
