Happy {Belated} Birthday, Mandy!

Okay, so it would seem that I'm great about making cards, but terrible about handing them out on time....

Here's the card that I made on Sunday for my friend, Mandy, who's birthday was yesterday. My plan is to drop it off at her house this morning after we walk dogs for the Humaine Society.

At first, I tried stamping in the opening of the Mat Stack #5 die on the kraft background with the swirl image from Wish Big, but I thought it looked like a big spider, so I decided to cut a Mat Stack #1 from red patterned paper and nestled it in the Mat Stack #5. Disaster averted. ;)


I used PTI cardstock (kraft, pure poppy), stamps (Big & Bold Wishes), impression plate (Woodgrain) and dies (Mat Stack #1, Mat Stack #5 and Love Lives Here). The teal cardstock is SU! and I used a Marvy Uchida scalloped punch for the teal circle.

Thanks for looking!

The sentiment is perfect for this card. Like everyone else I love the layering & the IP. Isn't it great when you can stop a disaster just by changing up one thing? The hardest part is coming up with a different angle.
