I joined a birthday card swap hosted by a friend from way back and will have a few cards to share with you over the next few days. Here is my first card, the simplest of the bunch.
I used white core Close to My Heart Buttercup cardstock and embossed it with my Cuttlebug. I then lightly sanded it.
I ran my ribbon through my small Xyron to make it easier to adhere. The stamped sentiment is from A Jillian Vance Design Charming Occasions stamp set. It was stamped and then punched out using a 1" punch. I pop-dotted it on another circle cut using a 1 7/8" circle punch.
Inside is just a simple piece of white cardstock with a little birthday cake stamp. (I don't know where the stamp came from-I have a ton I pulled out of their original packaging and put on cards to store. I have no idea where I got them!)
