Happy Birthday, Sandra!

Hi again,

Another October birthday...this time it's my dear DIL.  She had a very classic style so when I saw Sharon Johnson's  stamp challenge today I knew this style would be perfect. 

Sharon issued a challenge to use no picture stamps.  Today is also my DH's birthday so I am busy baking and planning his surprises as well but needed to get her card in the mail so it will arrive on time. 

I had borrowed a friend's gift package Cuttlebug folder some time ago and ran off a bunch of this simple design on the heavier Papertrey white cardstock.  I simply cut a piece of DP to fit the center, stamped the greeting and tied on the ribbon.  I wish you could feel the ribbon!  It's a beautiful, soft, 1-1/2" wide satin.  I cut the ends to look a bit like a bow tie. 

Notice anything else different?  This card doesn't open!  The weight of the paper and simplicity of the design prompted me to just write my personal greeting on the back and further simplify my task.  I used this technique on the pink card for Linda in my previous post. 

Thanks for stopping by!

Blessings and Happy Stamping!

I love these quick cards. Now that I have my cuttlebug I can make a bunch to have on hand.

This is one gorgeous card - I absolutely love it and I'm sure your DIL will as well!!! The Damask and dotted ribbon are both just to die for -- what a striking creation!!! I am so glad you could play -- thanks much!!!
