A quick birthday Card with Tim Holtz Alterations

Hello everyone

Just a quick post today. I made this card yesterday for a new friend to our monthly card group. She celebrated her first birthday with our group and since she just moved to Cape Town we had to make her feel extra special on her special day.

I used my Tim Holtz on the edge brackets die item # 656625 on the edge of the card and ran it through my Bog Shot. Unfortunately my Bagabond just died on me 3 months after the warranty expired. So sad about that, but luckily I had a back up >vbg<. the edge die is a steel rule die which means you can cut almost anything with it. I love my steel rule dies!

I cut the edge of the card and cut another piece of scrapbook paper with the same edge, layered them onto each other. Added a ribbon and a sentiment which I stamped on a cut out off cut of card using my Sizzix Labels Fancy die set item # 657575. I just adore the look of these labels.

Quick and easy!

Thanks for stopping by.

Happy Sunday

    1. Thanks Moz....I think I work best under pressure, made this in all of 15 minutes...and that's FAST for me...I tend to dwell ages on deciding which colors and inks to use!
