Birthday Fun!


I made this sweet birthday card for a friend using lots of dies.  It's sized for a small business size envelope at 7" x 6 1/4".  I started by making the strip of hexagons using the Papertrey Ink Hexagon Die Cover Plate, stamping the hexagons with the Happy Hexagons stamp set in colors that my friend loves.  After adhering the hexagon strip to the kraft paper, I pulled out my sewing machine and stitched a couple of line along side of the strip.


The fun polka dot tag was cut with the My Creative Time Vintage Stitched Label Die and stamped with the polka dot frame from Vintage Label Stamps.  I then added a die cut circle made with the MCT Stitched Circle Die and stamped with a sentiment from MCT's All Around Birthday.  That cute little button is from the Papertrey Ink Ripe Avocado Button Collection and tied with Thick Kraft Hemp Twine from Liz's Paper Loft Boutique.

Don't forget, My Creative Time's 12 Days of Christmas is still happening!  Be sure to click on the link below to see what Emma and some of the design team have created for you today!
