It happens to us all, you get just so wrapped up in the day to day of the day to day that you let something slip. Yep, my normally “on it” routine got thrown for a loop when I forgot a birthday. I needed a birthday card quickly and thus today’s card was born. This belated birthday card is for a very special person who’s special day just zipped past me.
I grabbed sheets of teal and Gable Green paper and got to work. I started by die cutting the largest shape from the Spellbinders Elegant Labels 4 Card Creator Dies in the teal and then I cut the next die in Gable Green. I then cut the smallest shape in white. I added a little Peacock Feathers ink to the two smaller shapes.
I then adhered the two largest shapes to another piece of Gable Green and trimmed it down to the size of the largest die. Next, I added the stamped box and sentiment; these are both from the Fancy Phrases Stamp Set by Waltzing Mouse Stamps.
Next, I created the little zebra accent. I stamped the zebra pattern from the Simply Safari Stamp Set from Stampendous on white cardstock using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and then trimmed the paper to fit in the “slots” of my small tag. Next I added Peacock Feathers ink over the strip so I could have a teal zebra banner.
I added my zebra band to the card and then I went a little crazy with the Prima flowers. I usually make my own flowers but I was in a hurry and I wanted to get this baby out the door!
I glued my flowers down and added the gems for accent. This all went on a 5″X7″ card base and it was complete. That was really all there was for this little late birthday card.
