“That’s the thing with handmade items.
They still have the person’s mark on them,
and when you hold them, you feel less alone.”

“Time to Celebrate Birthday card” inside.

“Time to Celebrate Birthday card” back.

Some of the supplies and tools I used were:
“Time to celebrate” cling Stamp Set by Graphic 45 from Hampton Art, Wood Mounted Rubber Stamp-Recollections-Sheet Music Score, ink-pad, eye shadow applicator, acrylic block, Envelope, blank card, Hand-stamped wood mounted stamp by Stampin up!, small scissors, pencil, etc. 

Planning my card.
The front of the finished card is 4″x 5″

I ink my stamps and then try them on a scrap piece of paper before stamping on my paper. I cut out, ink the edges and glued the stamped images on the card.
Did you notice that I used the whole set?

I keep my bookmarks, cards, tags, etc. in We R Memory Keepers – 12 x 12 Page Protectors – Multi Pack – 10 Pack in a binder.

  1. Gorgeous, I do love them. In my country the use of Celebrate Birthday cards has decreased dramatically. Nowadays people use phones, not cards. Sigh! I appreciate cards. It shows that the sender really appreciates the recipient!
