There's Something Worth Celebrating...and another GIVEAWAY!

Hello All!  The theme this week is "Birthdays" because Monday's card was a birthday card, and I decided to follow up with another for today.  The Birthday Basics Designer Series Paper was calling my name, so I answered with this adorable birthday card that makes me smile every time I look at it.

This card's design was inspired by Dawn McVey, but the rest is all ME!  I fell hard for that pocket on the front of the card, so I got right to work when I saw it.  It also gave me an excuse to pull out my Hung Up Cute Clips that have barely been touched.  They are super cute too!

The balloon Birthday Basics Designer Series Paper is my all-time favorite, so there was no difficult decision in picking what patterned paper the pocket was going to be made of.  Did you notice the notch I cut out at the top of the envelope?  I created it by punching about 1/2" down using our Extra-Large Oval Punch.  Great idea, right?!

TIP:  Pockets with oval notches are really "hot" right now, so pull out your Small, Large and Extra-Large Oval Punches, and use them when you need to make a pocket.  No need to buy any additional punches, unless that's what you really want to do.

The tag inside of the pocket pulls out, and I just love that little bit of Epic This and That Designer Washi Tape with gray stripes that I added.  It added a bit more spunk to this already adorable card.  Let me know what you think.  I'd love to hear from you!

Thanks for stopping by today!  Until next time, happy crafting!

Oh, wait!  Before I go, let's do another GIVEAWAY! Thursday is my birthday, and I'd love to know when yours is too! Leave me a comment below and tell me when your birthday is (you don't have to include the year unless you want to!).  For example, mine is September 26, so that's what I would type in the comment box.  Simple, right?  Let's see who wants this gorgeous Season of Style Washi Tape!

Please include your FIRST & LAST NAME to be entered.  US Residents only.  Winner will be selected on September 27, 2013 if 10 or more people enter to win.  Good luck!

Super adorable cute!! love the pocket! could you make that notch with the Envelope Punch Board too? That's what I thought you did at first... TOO fun!


Thank you, Patty! No, I don't have the Envelope Punch Board yet...it's on my wish list...so I don't know if it would make that notch too. I'll soon find out ;)
