Birthday Card for a Cute Critter

15 Jun
Hello everyone..I have a fun little card to share with you today.
A certain someone has a birthday this Sunday and this card just might be for that certain son of mine!
I saw the phrase “HOPpy Birthday” in the Lots of Puns set and knew that it’d help make the perfect card for my son!
Above you can see that I not only used the phrase as the greeting, I also used it to make a very faint background too.
I am just in love with my Joy’s Life Stamps
The images turn out great!  The polymer adheres to the acrylic blocks and does not fall off when stamping or cleaning!
If you have not had a chance to try these little cute stamps out…you really are missing out!
I hope you have enjoyed my project for today, this has been Jeannie from The Polka Cabana.
Thank you Canvas Corp for the wonderful papers used in today’s card!

When is a circle not a circle?

Do you like that title?  When is a circle not a circle?  When it is a square!!!
The reason that’s my title is because the main part of this card is made out of the
I wanted to point out a couple of things about the REFLECTIONS DIES.
They are very versatile, you can mix and match the sets, you can use them for cards, scrapbook pages and even sentiments and tags.
This card not only uses the Scalloped Circle Reflections set, but also the Mini Pearl French Flair set.
On the dark blue base you can see how elegant the Mini Pearl French Flair is.
I also used the Mini Pearl French Flair to create all my sentiment tags.
The tags were then embellished with rub-ons, Flourish Leaf Strip, Pretty Petal and mini pearls.
Here you can see how this unique card opens up.
You can see how the card is created with the 4 circles.
It is opened and closed the same way you open and close a packing type box.
Here is the inside all decorated also.
I just love this type of card!
I hope you can see just how much fun you can have with our Reflections Dies.  The possibilities are endless.  It is like buying 3 types of dies all in one shot.  Scrapbooking, card making and tag/sentiment dies all in one!
