This week I learned that I had just missed my friend’s birthday – and it wasn’t just ANY birthday. I missed Nancy’s 50th birthday. I never had an occasion to ask her birthdate (that’s a really bad habit of mine). Must. Be. Better. About. Gathering. And. Remembering. Birthdays. Anyway, I missed it. Although late, here’s my way of honoring her big day:
Tips, Tricks and Reminders
- Color Palette. When I sat down to make Nancy’s 50th birthday card, I knew I wanted the card to be all black and white. What better way to celebrate a milestone birthday? There are lots of ways to dress up a black and white card. You have to think through the layers carefully.
- A L-o-o-o-ng Banner. My original plan was to add a banner on each side of the sentiment. I didn’t like the way it looked, though, so I started playing around. I decided to position the banners in a way that it looks like a really long banner on which the sentiment is hung. I really like the look of this.
- A Big Shot Showcase. This card is an [inadvertent] advertisement for Stampin’ Up! exclusive framelits and The Big Shot. The four cutouts on the front of the card are cropped in the Big Shot with my Window Frame and Hearts a Flutter Framelits.
Sounds like a perfect time to remind you that I’m offering two embossing folders of your choice with the purchase of a Big Shot between now and March 22. Have you put off getting this amazing tool? Now’s your chance to get the Big Shot, 2 Sale-a-Bration items (with the purchase of at least one more item to get your order over $100) AND two embossing folders of your choice. Please contact me if you’d like to take me up on this offer.
