And a birthday card

I've been trying to use the supplies I have, because I am apparently a serial collector. :-) I know there are people who can identify with that. And so far, I haven't been too good about resisting buying new stuff. But...back in December, I placed an order with one of my favorite online sellers, Cutters Creek. Kim, the owner, was running a promotion offering freebies for certain orders. I ended up "winning" one of these freebies, and she graciously sent some laser-cut borders with my order. I hadn't used them yet and it's FEBRUARY!!! So I thought it was long past due. I actually did this on Sunday, but haven't had time to take pictures until now.

The patterned paper on the card is from a paper pack that was sold just before the holidays at Costco. The gold metallic strip across the front is Fresh Paint Gold Pearlescent Paper from Marcella K. I embossed it using a Sizzix Texturez plate through my Cuttlebug. The green scalloped strip is from the freebie pack. The stamped image is from a K & Co. stamp set called AB Lotus Greeting Stamps that I got from Michaels for $1.99 on clearance. Woo hoo! :-) This clear stamp set contained about 9 main stamps plus 8 smaller complimentary stamps. So, great deal for $1.99! The main image is stamped in Hint of Pesto Versamagic chalk ink. I used one of those complimentary stamps inVersacolor Sand pigment ink on the off-white card blank.

I cut the main stamped image and the blue scallop using my oval Nestabilities. I trimmed the card blank and added a blue border punched from the Fiskars Threading Water border punch. The blue is Bazzill cardstock from a winter pack.

Thanks for looking!
