Simple Birthday Card

Here is a very simple birthday card that I made today. I am in love with this newly discovered (to me) stamp company Sunshine Designs - and they are Canadian! Their stamps are so whimsical and lovely to colour. This is party of a birthday set.

I am always wondering why I can never seem to get on top of the disaster area that my craft desk seems to be. Each time I clean it up it just gets messy again. I realized today how many odds and sods I drag out even to do a very simple card like this one. For this card - which has no embellishments or fancy techniques - I used my Cuttlebug (for embossing the front), my Revolution (for my Nestabilities), my Copics (about 12 here), ink pads, two stamps, X-acto knife and mat, cutter, Score-pal and adhesive. No wonder my desk always looks like a train ran into it...

Supplies: cardstock (SU!, PTI), Stamps (Sunshine Designs - candles, Savvy - happy birthday), ink (Adirondak), Copic Markers, Cuttlebug embossing folder (Swiss Dots), Nestabilities.
