I made some Birthday cards using the retired paper "Greenhouse Gala". I saw a similar card - using the layout on the blog Stamping Up North. This card is perfect if you have those scrap strips of paper that you hate to throw away.
This layout is was so much fun that I just may have to use it again! For these cards, I used so saffron paper and some scraps of orange and green papers along with some embossed whisper white. I used some seam binding ribbon and added a few buttons on the sides and that was it.
Of course, I always have to finish the inside - I never can leave a card "naked" inside BUT I forgot to take a picture of that (sorry). I did get a close up of the stamped Happy Birthday image.
Thanks for leaving a comment! I love it when you do...
