Red, White, and Black Birthday Card

Hello, everyone, and Happy Friday!  My day began to the dulcet tones of the fire alarm going off…it can only go up from there, right?  I hope your day is off to a better start 🙂  Before we head into the weekend, I wanted to share with you a very special birthday card I made for a very special person – my sister!  She’s been my constant friend for my whole life and I always love making cards for her.

I started with the awesome dimensional “Z” sticker and the color red (her favorite!), then went from there.  It came together pretty easily once I picked my papers and patterns.  I embossed the red with a damask-pattern embossing folder, used a decorative punch on the black and white patterned paper, picked some lace, ribbon, and twine, layered everything together, and there it was!  Simple and beautiful, just like my sister 🙂

I wrote on the inside before remembering to take a picture…whoops…so you don’t get to see that.  I repeated the decorative edge punch and stamped a fancy “Happy Birthday,” leaving plenty of room for a note.  Because that’s really what it’s about 🙂

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a lovely weekend and I’ll see you again next week!

    I do love it! I forgot to tell you that it arrived a couple days ago and I showed it off to Dad 😀 (He was the only one home.) Thanks, Dee!
