Welcome, August. And welcome, Wednesday, to another clean and simple birthday card with an adorable Mo Manning image.
I chose another one of my favorites today – Make a Wish. She’s happy, and soooo quick and easy to color, you’ve got to love that. I colored her in blue this time, my favorite color!
I diecut her using the largest of the dies in the Stitched Rectangles STAX 1 set from My Favorite Things. It cuts the perfect rectangle to use on an A2 card front and gives you a perfect 1/16″ border around it.
I added part of a tiny Doodlebug doily and a Papirdesign sticker that I glued to a scrap of blue cardstock and popped up from the background. I embellished a tiny bit with some grey Marianne Design enamel hearts.
For the inside of the card, I diecut another one of those rectangles, used more of that tiny doily and added another Papirdesign sticker – in blue this time. I thought I’d used a different sentiment for the inside, but I didn’t realize that I’d used the same one twice until the card was finished. There was no way I was removing (and destroying) either of the stickers, so they both get to stay put.
