Happy Birthday, Ellie!


We also have a niece celebrating her birthday in November. In fact, her birthday was Monday and although she had this card in hand, I spaced it and forgot to post on Monday.

She's at an age where a Sephora gift card was appropriate, so I made this card to feel reminiscent of Sephora's packaging - black and white with a bit of red.

The strip of DP is from MFT. The red glitter paper and gem are from my stash. The Happy Birthday die is from Simon Says Stamp and is inlaid into the black panel. I find inlaying these 'skinny' dies back into a panel easier than trying to get adhesive on the back of them!

Happy Birthday, Ellie! (here's the birthday girl with her loot - she managed to catch the last day of the 20% off sale!)

I'm a sucker for red, black and white so I just may be CASEing this card, Ardyth.
