Birthday Card

This is a Birthday card I have made for somebody called Em, I thought I would be mega organised as her Birthday isn't for another 2 weeks yet!


- 6x6 scalloped edge card stock from hobbycraft
- embossing folder from sizzix (did it in reverse for a different effect)
- my NEW scalloped edge circle sizzix framelets in 3 sizes
- 1st circle using stash cardstock and printed from my laptop
-2nd circle using same cardstock but inked around the edges
- 3rd floral circle was made using a piece of 'cath kidston' packaging that I was bought for Christmas, I couldn't bare to throw it away so I recycled it and used it on this card :)
- ribbon from stash
- heart stickers bought for me by my friend from America
- inside paper downloaded from

Beautiful card Laura and the reverse embossing is super. Love the font you've used too. Remember, if you used any scraps/snippets you can enter it into my Pixie's Crafty Snippets Weekly Challenge. No prizes (as yet) just the fun of using up scraps - and you'd meet a lot of nice crafty playmates who would no doubt hop over to say hello and might become followers too :)) Di xx
