Make A Card Monday – My Take – Birthday Card

One of the many crafty things I like to do is make cards. DH jokes that they are “5 hour” cards because it takes me so long to make one. Much of the time is spent on getting ideas and finding the “right” papers and stamps in my mess. I’ve decided to make a few cards ahead of time to explore different ideas.

Many of the cards I see on the net are lovely, but a little frilly for our brood. So this is my take on a Werner Design card.

I had all the items on hand, including the Japanese tape (Daiso) and Compass (A Stamp in the Hand).
Below is the “How To” video from Werner Designs. I love that stamping thingy she has – makes it super easy to position the stamps. It’s on my wish list now.

      Thanks so much for the nice compliment.
      About the video: I know!
      Everything just works out perfectly in the video. She’s a pro. I had to cut that little strip three times before I got it straight! And then, I’m scrambling around because I put down the glue and can’t locate it. Oh well – just keep practicing / playing.
