Artiste Birthday card



I am on my way back from Utah and I have tons of stuff to show you and tell you. Once I get home and gather my thoughts I will compile it all for you. Quite frankly, I am so exhausted from this trip. However, I will have some good stuff for you tomorrow in regards to the new machine!

Today's card is another project that I made using the fabulous Cloud Nine stamp set. All I have to say about this stamp set is it is cute cute CUTE!

I used the Artiste cartridge and did a little bit of fussy cutting. Honestly, I do not think any of the cutting I have done using this stamp set is particularly fussy. In fact, it is pretty simple and does not have to be perfect! Give it a try ladies! I think you will surprise yourself.

Surprised to see Wed post up early but not surprised at how wonderful the card looks. Especially like the stitched ribbon that compliments the colors used on the card.

Seeing your beautiful card gave me an idea. The use of your embossing folder with the lines at and angle made me wonder if other folders could be used at an angle like that.
