Anyway...this card was given to use by my mom and dad. My mom made it and I just love it! I might have to copy it soon! Love the use of the jeweled brad and the sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes!! Thanks Mom!
Sassafras papers usually have one decorative edge that measures 12x12 in length. So I used this to embellish the cards a little. The black and white pointy edge is the one that was added to one of the papers I bought!
I then added some Old Olive satin ribbon. Then I added a monster and cute letters from another paper to piece together "Happy B-Day!"
And while I was at it...one of my freinds just had her second little boy, so I thought it would be fun to send the Big Brother, Benton a card to celebrate!
Don't you just love this Monstrosity collection??
I used the paper piercer to punch holes in a circle pattern..."How did I get it so perfect?" you ask. Well I used the 1-3/4" Circle punch on a scrap piece of paper to make a template! Just think of all the templates for paper piercing you can make!!
One more card to come tomorrow!
