Happy Thursday friends!

Here’s a quick and easy card with lots of pop and it’s mostly done with dies, an embossing folder and some pretty designer series paper.  I’m sure you have lots of pretty papers in your card stash, so let’s use them to make birthday cards, get well, anniversary and just because cards. You’ll find the easy to follow tutorial after the Shopping List.

Stampin Up Here's A Card birthday card

Here’s A Card stamp set #149438

I used Misty Moonlight and Bumble Bee cardstock on today’s card.  Both of these cardstock colors are part of the new In-Colors and they all coordinate well with each other.  Did you notice the soft texture on the Misty Moonlight cardstock?  I used the new Textile Textures 3D Embossing Folder to give this deep yet subtle texture to the cardstock.  I’m happy that the Here’s A Card stamp set carried over into the new Annual Catalog because there are many sentiments and even some witty ones to use for happy mail. The Gilded Gems rhinestones on the Ornate Frame Sentiment did not photograph well in the bright Texas sunlight.  They are actually metallic gold rhinestones and not black as they appear in my photo above.
