Live Beautifully Birthday Card

One of my favorite types of cards to make (and receive) is birthday cards. There is something special about celebrating another year of blessings with a handmade card. Tomorrow is my birthday and I was thrilled to receive this beautiful card in the mail from my CTMH upline and friend Denise Anderson-Turley.

Denise used the Live Beautifully papers and stamp set to make this card. If you look closely, you can see the shine from the gold foil flowers in the background paper. (This collection is only available for one more day!)

Thank you Denise for thinking of me and sending me this beautiful, thoughtful card! xoxo

My day was brightened by some Happy Mail!

I received this adorable card from my dear friend Karen Pedersen a few weeks ago. I fell in love with the colors she used and sweet floral sentiment on the front from the May Stamp of the Month called Live, Love, Laugh. More importantly though, I fell in love with the sweet message of encouragement that she enclosed on the inside. Thank you Karen for your kind heart and friendship! You made my day!

When was the last time you sent a handmade card to someone who was on your mind? You never know just how much you might brighten their day when they open their mailbox.

Have a wonderful day everyone! xoxo

Live Beautifully Card

I am loving the CTMH May promotional paper and stamp set called Live Beautifully! I used them both to create this card. The bold black and white striped paper was used on the top of the card and I used the gold foil diagonal striped zip strip (found on the top of the patterned paper) to separate the white card base and the bold striped paper. The sentiment and flowers came from the Live Beautifully stamp.

I stamped the flowers on a piece of scrap cardstock in Pixie and Raspberry ink, then trimmed them out and adhered them to the card with Thin 3-D Foam Tape. I finished off the card with a few self-adhesive Gold Sequins.

Did you know that you can get the Live Beautifully Collection at a discount when you order one of the great bundles? The Live Beautifully Collection is only available during May while supplies last. Visit my website for details.
