A Birthday Perk

Remember that sweet card that I received from Stampin' Up! that I shared yesterday? Well one of the perks of being a Stampin' Up! demonstrator is a birthday discount that we receive on top of our regular demo discount. That's what was in the card. And it's super exciting when you have a July birthday since that's when all the brand new goodies come out! Woohoo!

I used my discount on the brand new Perfect Pennants Bigz Die, which I paired with a ruffle flower that I made with some pretty pink crepe paper on this card.

I had so much fun with my birthday treat themed cards that I made earlier this month, so after the weekend's birthday festivities, I decided to create a Thank You card inspired by even more yummy birthday treats. Look at today's yummies.


Hubby and I picked up some pretty crepe paper streamers while shopping this weekend. I immediately went home and created some ruffled flowers. I love the way the little doily from the Perfect Pennants die creates a sort of a frame around the ruffled flower. I wanted to keep the card fairly simple to showcase my pretty flower and doily, so I added a strip of kraft crepe paper to my Crumb Cake card and stamped the sentiment from SU!'s Afterthoughts. Thanks for peeking in today!

Hi Chris, The Perfect Pennants Bigz Die from Stampin' Up! has BOTH triangle and circle shapes! Perfect for making all kinds of pennants - guess that's why they call it Perfect Pennants :)

  1. Gorgeous card Nina! I had never noticed the circle pennants die before and wondered how you did that. When I think of pennants, I think of the triangle shapes and not the circles so I probably never looked at them. I love the colors of the card too. Are those really cookies? They look like a real button on top of them. How fun is that? Happy belated birthday!
