Happy First Birthday. A Card Even Her Mom Will LOVE!

Leave a comment

A pink and yellow birthday card made using geometric medallions and sunburst Martha Stewart Punches.

I made this card for a sweet little girl who is turning one.   The card was a little late being mailed and even later arriving after it had to cross the Atlantic to reach her.   I figured if I was going to pay the the international postage, I should make a card even her parents would love.  Along with the card I sent some cute clothes.  I had a hard time picking just two outfits, it was so much fun shopping.  Someday I will have my own kids, but for now clothes shopping for a little one made me smile 🙂

Starting with a blank grey card, I used the Martha Stewart Geometric Medallion punch for the beautiful concentric circles in both pink and yellow.  The flower is made from layering a couple of the Sunburst punch with a little pink sparkle in the center.  And that is my hand writing for the “Happy Birthday”.

As I continue on this crafting journey I think I’ll invest in some stamps with common phrases like “Happy Birthday” and “Thanks” to give my cards more of a polished look.
What are your favorite sentiment stamps?
