A Golden Celebration

Celebration Time.1214Someone we know is always having a birthday, right?  I am terrible at sending out birthday cards.  I know!  You’d think I wouldn’t have a problem with this since I make so many of them.  I just can’t get them in the mail!

However….this is one card I can’t wait to send to someone.  I LOVE this card.  It turned out so well.  It’s one of those cards that just makes you smile when you finish making it.  I did copy the general layout and design of the card but I increased the size of the layers and added the ribbon.

We both used Celebration Time stamp set and the Bundle of Love Specialty Designer Series Paper on our cards.  This package of designer paper is very different from most of Stampin’ Up!’s papers.  In a usual package of designer paper you get two pieces of six different designs.  The Bundle of Love papers are similar in that if you look at the gold foil design side you get four pieces of a design but when you turn them over two of the four are Blushing Bride and the other two are Soft Sky.  Check out the picture on page 189 of the Annual Catalog.  All three of the gold foil designs worked perfectly for these cards.

Aren’t these gorgeous cards?  You can check out the supplies below to see what you need to make my card.  Have a great day!  Take care and Happy Stamping!
