Essentials Paper-Piercing

Betsy's Blossoms

 Today's Birthday Card features the Stampin' Up! stamp set, Betsy's Blossoms.   This is a great go to stamp set with its bold bright images.

My card base was embossed with the Chevron embossing folder for added zip. I also trimmed one edge with the Scallop Trim border punch.

Betsy's Blossoms
Paper-Piercing takes my card to the next level.   The new Essentials Paper-Piercing Pack has so many templates including punches, Apothecary Framelits, Edgelits and the basics.

Fancy Fold Boys Birthday Card

I Dig You
My Grandson loved this birthday card when I showed it to him.  What little boy doesn't love trucks and diggers?   My card was stamped with the I Dig You Stamp set.

Did you notice that it's shaped like a house or garage?  With myy Simply Scored Scoring Tool making this boy's Birthday card was a snap.

I added texture to the roof and the ground with the Square Lattice and Houndstooth Dies.  My wheels look ready to roll off the page.  I die cut and embossed them with my Sweet Buttons Embosslits.


I Dig You
The fun doesn't end there.  Here's a peek at the inside of my little boy's birthday card.

Stop by tomorrow for another Creativity Blooms Color Combo.
