Another Extremely Simple Card

This is a birthday card for my daughter-in-law. Her birthday is in December and she LOVES Christmas. I was using up these teapot stickers for Christmas cards, and I thought I better save one and use it for Brooke.

The stickers are from Michael’s and are by Mary Englebreit. (I got them last year.) They came dimensionalized and glittered. I stuck one on a circle punched with a plain circle Marvy punch. I mounted that on a scalloped circle punched out of red cardstock with a scalloped Marvy punch. I embossed a circle on the front of the card by using a plain circle Nestability. The “warm birthday wishes” was printed on my computer. I think she’ll really like it.

Thanks so much for looking, and I hope you’ll come back and visit again soon!

What a great design! Hey, Anchor is OPEN! I went on Monday- looks good, it's really nice to have them around again. I guess you can sign up for email newsletters as they stopped the mailings I think. Hope you are having a good week. I've been getting ready for this class at the library. Somehow the week is getting away from me. I'll post my samples on my blog at some point so you can give my your opinion if you think they are too complex to complete within an hour or so.

Oh, the beauty of clean and simple! I love the way the embossed circle looks. As much as I'm trying to cut back, I did have to order the Nestabilities circles lately -- I constantly needs circles, it seems! Some things you just need!
