Have you been enjoying birthday card week?  It’s really kept Ann focussed on sharing some happy thoughts with people.

And we all need some happy thoughts, don’t we!?!

I’m personally a fan of today’s card.  It was fast and fabulous…just like a Jack Russell Terrier!

Easy and Elegant Birthday Card

Don’t you just love those Rich Razzleberry rhinestones?  We made them ourselves.  Okay.  Ann made them by coloring the Basic Rhinestones with a Rich Razzleberry Stampin’ Blend like we used in the card along with the Light half of the duo.

Do you recognize the stamp set?


That’s because it comes from the Petal Passion Memories and More Card Pack.  (And the greeting is from the Picture Perfect Birthday Photopolymer Stamp Set

Yep.  You get 72 items to make cards, make 3-D projects or scrapbook with.  It’s like getting kit pieces for people who don’t want the confines of a kit – something to inspire and get you started.

All you have to do to use the large 4″ x 6″ ones is to trim them down to at least 4″ x 5-1/4″ to easily layer them on a standard folded card base.

OR Like We Did Here…

Fast & Easy Birthday Card

Cut it down to 3-13/16″ x 5-1/16″ and also cut a border of 4″ x 5-1/4″.

OR you can make even borders by cutting down the watercolored piece 3-3/4″ x 5″ if that’s the look you’re going for.
