Birthday Blessings

Yesterday was my husband's daughter-in-law's birthday and I wanted to make a special card just for her.  I thought the challenge at Die Cutting Divas - Fall Colors would be great for an October birthday.  Then I saw the sketch at Freshly Made and combined the two.


The top note is from Elegant Edges.  I printed the sentiment with the computer, cut it out, then cut the next two layers progressively larger.  The strip of green is embossed with the herringbone folder (and by coicidence came out looking exactly like the leaves in the background paper.)  A piece of jute and the card is complete.

I saw a post about making your own envelopes on The Paper Boutique where Linda was reviewing the new MS Mini Scoringboard.  I've seen this before using the regular scoreboard but had forgotten about it.  I decided to give it a try.

I have a stack of paper that hasn't worked well on my Cricut and thought it would be perfect to use as envelopes.  This one was brown on one side and rusty cream on the other, perfect for my card.  And very easy to make.  I think I'll be doing more of these to use up that paper.
