I am the worst when it comes to sending out cards!  I live about 30-45 minutes away from a physical Post Office (depending on traffic).  So just to get to the Post Office can be a struggle.  So, this stamp set from Taylored Expressions called Belated Birthday,  is so perfect for me!  I didn't forget, I just couldn't get it in the mail in time.  Does anyone else have this problem?  I tell my husband that I'm a cardmaker, not a card sender lol.

I may be in love with that basic bow die! So cute!


Materials Used:
Taylored Expressions Belated Birthday stamp set
Taylored Expressions Basic Bow die
Taylored Expressions From the Heart Frame die
Green Cardstock
White Carstock
Crate Paper Maggie Holmes Collection pattern paper
Copic Markers

Intructions:
1.  Cut/score cardbase to 4 1/4 x 4 3/4 inches.
2.  Diecut white cardstock using the Heart Frame Die.
3.  Using the Repositionable dispenser, adhere the diecut to the card base.
4.  Stamp image onto the die cut, and card front.
5.  Stamp the sentiment in black ink underneath.
6.  Remove the die cut.  Color in using Copic markers.
7.  Stamp the image again, color in the balloon.  Cut out & set aside.
8.  Diecut the bow using pattern paper.
9.  Adhere the white die cut, bow & balloon to the card using 3D Foam Squares.

I so get the "maker not sender" mentality! For that reason, I need this stamp set. Adorable 'late' card.

Isabel Z said...

I would be so happy to receive this cute card! Tfs! Hugs Traci ;0)

Laura Strack said...

I love your lil' birdies! So stinkin' cute! Love all the dimension too. Adding that balloon separate was smart. I'm often late at getting my cards out, too, but throw in a little cash for the grand kids and they forget the belated part. lol.

I like your card and can empathize with being a card maker and not a sender... I am always behind. I am always curious as to what these cards say on the inside. Thanks for being on the blog hop!

Adorable birds! I only live 3 minutes from the PO, but getting there before they close is my issue. LOL Because the day escapes me with my 1 year old grand daughter in tow. =D
