Happy Birthday to You!

This card was inspired by Becca of Amazing Paper Grace (LOVE her blog). I fell in love with the cards she made here for the JustRite Stampers blog. I love being able to personalize my cards and JustRite stamps are so perfect for that. I used Basic Grey Granola paper as my starting point and then planned everything else around that.

I used a magnet sheet that I bought at AC Moore and cut to size to hold my nesties dies in place. It made it so easy to keep the dies lined up and I was able to cut everything at the same time. I popped the label one piece up on foam tape and then doubled the foam tape to pop up the circle.

I used the Designer Centers and Borders for the circle. I cut part of the border away to be able to put the name on the circle. It was very easy to do this and I was careful so that I will be able to add the piece on the grid and still stamp a complete circle. I stamped the center separately so I could stamp in a different color and then die cut it and mat it.
For the inside, I added strips of paper from the front and stamped the sentiment. The little leaves are from Borders and Corners {Square}. The butterfly is from the same punch I used on the front, just glued flat.

Thanks for visiting my blog!
