Circles and Presents
I made this card a couple weeks ago, before I knew about the sale. I used one of my favorite birthday stamp sets--Patterned Party, which just happens to be on sale right now. If you don't already have it, you should get it while it is HALF PRICE! You can't beat that. I came across some pre-cut card stock from one of my 2011 classes and decided that I ought to use it up. I started out with the supplies from this card and then got busy stamping. I stamped my presents in Marina Mist and layered them on the same colored card stock. I added a strip of Marina Mist card stock to the inside edge of the card so that it would highlight my scalloped edge. The patterns in the presents inspired me to add more patterns to my card, so I stamped a panel with stamps from the Circle Circus set in Pink Pirouette, Certainly Celery, Marina Mist, and Basic Gray. I mounted everything on my card base that I textured with the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder. Finally, I finished it of with a bit of seam binding ribbon.
