What better excuse to get back into my craft room than to create a birthday card for a close friend. I just got some new stamp sets from Stampin Up and wanted to try them out.
For this card, I used the Everything Eleanor stamp set and Cafe Comfort Designer Series paper. I actually had to break out my scissors to cut some of the pieces, which is new for me. I usually like to go with punches or die cuts. It was very easy, so I will be cutting embellishments more often.
I used the Friendly Phrases stamp set for the sentiment. This is a new set for me and it has so many great sentiments to use for a variety of occasions.
Now no birthday isn't complete without a little gift, I used the Stampin Up's Fancy Favor die box to create this cute bag. I didn't have any coordinating tissue paper, so I ran some card stock through my paper shredding to finish it off.
