Birthday Card Swap!

I haven't really done much of anything lately - including stamping! But I signed up for a Birthday Card swap and needed to get these finished. I was a "good girl" and got them started right away, but didn't get them finished until this afternoon. Why is it that "simple" cards are deceptively simple looking, but in fact aren't?? There was A LOT of stamping on these, and most of it was done using the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig for exact placement. I'm not a big fan of making duplicates either, lol! But...you always need to have birthday cards on hand, and I'm looking forward to seeing what I get back in return!!!

Recipe:
Stamps: Flower Shop, Banner Greetings, Oh, Hello, Morning Meadow
Paper: Coastal Cabana, Crisp Cantaloupe, Whisper White
Ink: Coastal Cabana, Crisp Cantaloupe, Pistachio Pudding, Basic Black
Accessories: Top note die, pansy punch, dimensionals

I'll be posting Bella's birthday party invitations I've made soon (her party is on Saturday!), and I have three additional birthday cards to make. Busy, busy!!

Hello Jennie, lovely to see you back with such a lovely card, what wonderful colours too and as you say, simple does'nt always mean easy to make. Kate x

Great card. I'm not a big fan of making duplicates either... Which reminds me that Christmas is right around the cornr!

Yes, sometimes what you think will be simple becomes a real project when you are mass producing! These are really sweet!

I am also reminded about Christmas cards...??? :)
