A Birthday Card with a Story

So, first the story.

A few weeks ago at a card making day with friends we were playing around with the Tim Holtz Distress Marker Spritzer Tool.  The first piece we did really was "a mess", not the look we were aiming for.  But I jokingly said "well I can use that in a card".  And they laughed!  So I took it as a challenge to myself to do just that- make a card using it.

So, now the card.

The stitched square in the middle was that "messy" piece. It looked a bit like confetti, lots and lots of confetti.   I layered it over some cool patterned paper from Photoplay (using fun foam for dimension), added a strip of pink holographic tape and some wrapped gold threads and popped a very old dimensional cupcake sticker (from Sticko) on top.  You can see the sparkle of the tape better in this next photo.

So, there's today's card. Not all of our cards will be perfect, or even our favorites.  But, they will make someone happy.  And isn't that the point of card making, to make others happy by sending our cards.

So, enjoy your day, and make someone happy- send them a card.
