It’s March already! This month is big on birthdays and other celebrations around here. Thanks to the short February it always seems to creep up on me too quickly, so this year I’m trying to be more prepared than usual. Starting with laying in a stash of birthday cards, the first two inspired by the beautiful gift box on p.24 of the Stampin’ Up!® 2019 Occasions Catalogue.
This was actually a project I made with Case-ing the Catty in mind a couple of weeks ago, but silly me forgot to upload my link in the crew files so I missed that one – doh! I thought they were too cute not to share, though.
My two cards play on that box look with the ribbon and dsp ties like on a nicely wrapped present. The bases are Grapefruit Grove, as is the ribbon (from the ribbon combo pack that was a brief part of Sale-A-Bration because it sold out so very quickly). The hero of both is the beautiful Happiness Blooms DSP which is so bright and fun and has the most gorgeous graphic patterns.
This floral pattern with the Night of Navy background is my favourite of the whole pack.
And this orange, green, and white seems very March coloured to me – probably becuase of the Autumn transition and St Patrick’s Day being in March.
These two lovelies are off in the mail to fellow March birthday buddies. But I think I might duplicate them and add them to my card stash as well.
Thanks for stopping by,
