Picture Perfect Birthday - Leftover Bits & Pieces Card


Hi Friends! Today I made a few cards using leftover bits and pieces from card classes. Sometimes these leftovers pile up and I decided I'd challenge myself and see what I can make with them. When I prepare cards for classes I pre-cut all the card stock and tuck it inside an envelope. If there are any cards leftover I just put them in a container. And they sit. And sit. And sit. Does this ever happen to you? So today I thought I'd see what I could make with them, especially as I can't even recall the original card design! LOL I also wanted to use stamp sets that are retiring. So for the next three days I'll post one of these 'bits and pieces' cards with you!  


Here are the leftover 'Bits & Pieces" for today's card:




I chose to use the "Picture Perfect Birthday" stamp set:


Here's my finished card:


I think it turned out quite nice! I also stamped the envelope to match, so now I've got a birthday card ready to pop into the mail when I need it!

I added some texture to the card base with the Softly Falling embossing folder (which is also retiring) and a bit of bling with the Dazzling Diamonds Glitter, sequins and rhinestones.
