This fun, bright and masculine card was a joint effort with my little crafting buddy Arielle who is six. We decided to make our friend Joel a birthday card that would be a “keeper” and we both were giddy with the result. From the banner to the fun stamping, “raised dotted” cardstock from Bazzil Basics and coordinating color scheme, this Daily Junque paper stack from Pink Paislee is so versatile and very cheery! We began with choosing the color of card stock then moved on to paper selection and pulled out coordinating stamps and trim as we went along. The shape that showcases “Happy Birthday” is from Spellbinders and was cut on Papertrey Ink. “Kraft cardstock” and the small banner stamp we used was from Michael’s $1 bin! The numbers that look old fashion are from the paper collection and add a personalized touch to the card. We cut and distressed them before adding them to the card with foam tape. I hope future cards we make together are just as cute. P.S. Joel, the birthday loved his card. :0)

So mama was a crafter too! Bead work, leather, drums, jewelry, masks, paper crafts, baking, etc.
Sooo… After receiving HER mini album, she was sure to send me home with a bunch of suede scraps, beads, shells, ribbon, old calendars and other tools and goodies for my awakened passion! THEN — (dun, dun, dun) we’ve hit up the craft store a few times (okay, more than a few times); well it’s close to the Petco and their new puppy needed treats, ya that’s why.
BIG THANK YOU MOM!!! I plan on using all the supplies to create, create, create (hopefully with you too)!
