Better with Age...


I am normally a many layers type card maker, but sometimes simplicity totally works!  It definitely works well for cards that are going in the mail!  This card is about as close to a one layer card as I get. I started with a Party Time Picture My Life card, which I cut down to card size and matted with Lagoon cardstock.  The original card, said Celebration in a banner strip over the present....which really did not work for me.  I added a Birthday Wishes sticker to change out the sentiment.  This card features a little humor from the On Your Birthday stamp set.


The birthday sentiment carries over to the inside of the card.  I save pretty much all of my paper scraps!  They are the perfect addition to add to the inside of cards.
