Autumn Birthday Girl

Hello,

I forgot to show you the card I made for Kassidy’s 15th birthday.  Being born in November, it just comes so natural to do an autumn card with colorful leaves.

Watermarked(2017-11-13-1628)

The stamp set I used is to make this card was

911713

Now that Christmas cards are being made, a person can still use this stamp set for winter theme cards.  I didn’t realize this was a planner stamp set when I bought it, AND I still didn’t know it was for made for planners when I was using the set.  I stamped something and said to myself, “Hm, this image is small enough to use in my planner.”  I looked at the set again, and there it was!  Planning Clear Stamps – this was perfect, since Kassidy and I are into planners.

  • Ranger Watercolor Paper
  • Lawn Fawn Scalloped Rectangle Dies
  • Versafine Onyx Black Ink Pad
  • Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers 
  • 100# Simon Says Stamp Orange Peel Cardstock
  • Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid Fall 6×6 Paper Pack for card base               
  • Scrapbook Adhesives E-Z Runner Tape
  • white lace

 

Sentiment is 

 

The flower is a chrysanthemum, sometimes called a mum.  When I was in high school, our school colors were royal blue and gold.  Every year at homecoming time, you could see huge gorgeous yellow mums with royal blue ribbons.  They were so beautiful.  Chrysanthemums are the birth flower of November.  So it is with special meaning that I added a mum to Kassidy’s card.

 

  • 80# Neenah Classic Crest Solar White Cardstock
  • Hero Arts Dandelion Ink Pad
  • yellow cardstock
  • Tim Holtz Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink on tips of petals
  • yellow brad from my stash

 

“Better late than never,” as I think it is in this case.  Keep in mind that you could make a similar card to this any time of year since this is a “Holiday Bliss” set.  I do like this set.  

Happy stamping!
