Fall Birthday Card

by Jessica Taylor on October 29, 2012

Not every card turns out the way you want it to.  At least for me it doesn’t.  I’m taking The Holiday Card Workshop and I absolutely loved the snowflake card that Jennifer McGuire shared today.  This is my variation…

Fall Leaves Birthday Card Fall Birthday Card

 

Things I discovered while making this card -

  1. I have no snowflake stamps.  Hard to believe, I know.
  2. I should have used Very Vanilla instead of Whisper White card stock with this color combo.
  3. I love the Color Spritzer Tool.
  4. I should have made the opening for the greeting smaller because I didn’t have a greeting stamp large enough to fill it.
  5. I love to stamp.  Even when my card doesn’t turn out the way I envisioned it.

Love your card! Personally, all the things you mentioned you would change, I kinda like about your card! I think the pop the Whisper White provides is great! I think the Very Vanilla might loose some of that pop! But thats just me! Happy Stamping!–EK

Thank you! What I love about cards is that whoever I give this card to will just be impressed that they got a handmade card. They won’t dissect it like I do. :)

It’s a great card. I like seeing the technique applied on a non-holiday card too. I really like your color choices.

Love it… I too recently discovered the spritzing tool and had the best time with it.

This is a great layout and color choices! It is hard to believe you don’t have any snowflake stamps!
Thanks for sharing your pretty card!

I love your design! And are you sure no snowflakes? How can that be possible LOL???? Surely, there must be a mini one stashed someplace! Good to know some are coming.

I love the white and white space on this card, especially all the white around the greeting! Makes it stand out and then guide your eyes to the beautiful leaves above and below it :-)

No snowflake stamps? Oh my! I could send you several and never miss them! I have way too many!
But seriously…I love this card!
