Big on Birthdays Happy Birthday Card

Do you recognize the texture on this card? It’s the Basket Weave Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. It may not look like basket weave. That’s because I used the other side – the debossed side – of the card stock. I think it makes an interesting pattern that goes well with the lines in the sentiment font. The stamped images are from the Big On Birthdays stamp set. The last little glittery touches are from the Glitter & Clear Epoxy Shapes embellishments.

There’s less than a week left of Sale-A-Bration, which is the only way you can get this embossing folder. It comes in a bundle with the Blossoming Basket stamp set – the bundle is free with a $100 order. Check out the Sale-A-Bration items here.

Eclectic Expressions Polka Dot Thank You Card

Do you like experimenting with abstract patterns? Then the Eclectic Expressions stamp set is for you! Repeat, layer, and overlap images. For today’s card I decided to use only one of the pattern stamps, but I repeated it in three different colors. It’s such a simple card, but the textured dots bring it to life. Just change the colors and the sentiment, and this can be for anyone and any occasion.
