Happy Birthday

As promised, step three, Happy Birthday

Happy Birthday, Korine…

Wanting to be sure not to go with the red, white and blue theme for this card. When you have a birthday around a holiday, I really try to make the card extra special. Now, some will say, what is the big deal. However, mom always told stories about her holiday birthday’s. She was getting gifts in Christmas wrappings, etc. So that is why I try to be aware of how that must feel.

First, let us not miss that cute little slip, topped with ribbon. What would you use it for? I use mine to mark my calendar or even my book page.

I know that Korine loved the Cute Fruit stamp set. Sooo, you know I had to at least use a “piece” of it. hahaha. Adding in the 2020-2022 In-Colors too, ohhh yes please. But can you see what i did for the watermelon on the card front??

Not Wink of Stella….

I used the Shimmery Crystal Effects. Can you tell how much it lightened up the Magenta Madness, you can really see it in the flower centers. I have a trick for you too. Apply your Shimmery Crystal Effects and to smooth out the “goo” use a scrap piece of cardstock and GENTLY spread and smooth it out. I looks as smooth as glass. Well, of course until you stick your finger in it before it dries. Do not ask I how I know that. haha

Sweetie, I sure hope that you had a great birthday weekend.

Hugs and Have a Great Day getting Crafty!!
