I was in the mood to make a card the other night and thought I might need to start making some more birthday cards to not send out to my friends and family for their birthdays *yes okie said NOT, because okie just makes the cards, she doesn't remember to mail the dammed things*.
I wanted to use my Stampin Up hostess set Out of the Box for the card. I really like the Out of the Box set, it comes with the jack in the box and some really cute images to put at the end of the spring. I did get part of the idea from the Stampin Up catalog.
The flourishes on the left hand side of the card are what was left over from the CELEBRATE card I made a few weeks ago.
At first the right hand side was plain and I didn't like it so I used a Versamark pad to add some flourishes and I liked it after that. I cut a small piece of cardstock to cover the area where I was going to stamp the sentiment so it would stand out better. I am not sure what set the "it's your day!" is from, but it didn't come with the Out of the Box set.
