Happy Dotty Birthday!

Another posting this week!!! I have been quite busy:) This is a very simple card that I made at our Stamp Club. We used our circle punches, Close to my Heart DP and Baker's Twine.

After the circles were punched, I positioned them on the black cardstock then stamped Happy on several of them. Two of the circles were tied with Baker's twine and popped up on the cardstock. Finally birthday was stamped at the bottom of the card. Using this as an idea there are so many possibilities....
  • Use any of your simple punches
  • Use any of your sentiments
  • Use ribbon, twine, embellishments
  • This can be used for any kind of card. Just change the DP
Have fun thinking of the endless possibilities:) I hope that I have encouraged you to create a card this week. If you use this idea, please drop me a note and I would love to visit your blog. Thanks for stopping to visit. Please feel free to leave a comment and/or follow this blog. (I am only 2 followers from the 200 mark!!) When I reach the 200th follower there will be a surprise!

  10. Hi Barbara,
    The CAS aspect of your card is definitely fit for a male along with the color scheme and textures. It might be an easy card to make but it carries with it lots of depth and a heartfelt sentiment.

    Thank you so much for joining our challenge at Top Tip Tuesday and for linking up your talent with us at Make It Monday. Always a pleasure to see your work.
