Putting Together The Birthday Pieces

The Stylized Birthday stamp was an instant love for me when I saw the new catalogue.  Sometimes you just need a BIG birthday stamp right in the middle of the white space!

It says it all really and that font is oh so pretty!  We know I’m a font nerd!

As I was making this card, I realised that often the same card design has so many options for how it can be put together.  This is never more apparent than in a card class where I pre-cut the pieces and participants shape their own creation & add their own touch by changing placement, layout & style….

Turn a piece of cardstock to the diagonal and the card has a whole different look.

Flip the DSP over & the style is different.

Move the pieces around and the layout changes.

Individualisation and creative opportunities are some of the things I love most about handmade designs.  No 2 are ever the same (even if you intended for them to be)!  And why would you want them to be?  That’s what printed & machine generated cards are for.

We have the personal touch.  Embrace the differences in your cards and play with the pieces.  The change might delight you!  Kelly x

PS, this card was for my upline’s birthday.  Which design do you think I sent???
