Happy 30th Birthday!

Hello, friends!




Before we get going with this card, I wanted to tell you that there is a 'retiring products' section up on my ordering site. Everything in there is while supplies last and includes a lot of great stuff! Like the gold embossing powder, pearls, craft heater, and versa mark stamp pad that I used on yesterday's card. Click here to check it out ==> retiring products

Today I have a project that I made a few months ago, but was not sure if I would post it or not. However, I thought I might as well because you guys might be able to pull some inspiration from it. Honestly, I had made something similar about 3 years ago. Is it weird that I inspired myself?

Anyway, this card is made using the Forever Young and Botanical cartridges. I love using older cartridges sometimes! Now for the stamped lettering I used the fonts stamps from the triple stamp set that was on special a few months back. However, you could use any font stamp set or even cricut cuts. Using the stamps is great for skinner fonts because those are sometimes harder to cut with the cricut.
