Papertrey Ink Blog Hop


Papertrey’s monthly blog hop is a fun one this month. Here’s the challenge: Your challenge is to use some type of leftover Christmas wrapping, paper, bows, ribbon, tags, cancelled postage, or other leftover Christmas materials to create a project. And if you really want to challenge yourself even further, you can try to create a non-holiday card from your leftovers.”


I took one of my daughter’s Christmas cards from Grandma (hope she doesn’t see this post LOL!) and cut out the adorable little cupcake. I knew it would be perfect for a clean and simple birthday card. (Check back tomorrow for a “clean and simple” post about 2012.)

I used Papertrey Ink’s Stamper Select White and Hibiscus Burst cardstock. I also used one of my most used PTI stamp sets called Mixed Messages in addition to the Everyday Button Bits set. I added a bit of Close to my Heart’s Glitz Glitter Gel and a little dimension with some 3-D Foam Tape. I also used my rectangle Nestabilities. It was a quick and simple card, but those are the ones I like best. *Ü*
