Penny Black stickers
....make the nicest cards! I used some of her Christmas stickers for my cards last year and they turned out just beautifully. In fact, Cardmaker Magazine picked one up for this year's Christmas issue. When I saw these spring flowers I grabbed them -- knew I'd use them sometime to make a special card. So I used these two to make the last two birthday cards I need for this month.
This one helped me use up some scraps as well. Sentiment is by Paper Trey, Ink.
Like the way I photographed this card with the ribbon? Very professional, don't ya think:0)
Funny thing is I refused to put ribbon on these two cards, tempting as it was. I love ribbon, I really do, but it seems as if you see it on every single card. So I challenged myself to make two cards without ribbon.
I've also been seeing a lot of these tent topper cards where the image goes off the top of the card. So I thought I'd try that, but with a little different twist -- I'd go off the side.
Sentiment on this one, again, is by PaperTrey, Ink.
