Bright and happy

Happy Christmas Eve, everyone. My present to you is this - something pretty to look at *g*.

This is a card made for my friend Liz's birthday last month (although I only caught up with her the other night - better late than never).

I wish I could take credit for it, but I totally CASEd the card from the extraordinarily talented Kim at this link, and just added a few touches of my own.

I used theSquare Lattice embossing folder (from the current Summer Mini Catalogue) on a strip of Daffodil Delight cardstock and attached that to the left hand side of the card.

Here's a closeup of the texture on the Square Lattice folder ... I love this one! Perfect for all sorts of looks, including the ever-elusive "masculine" card.

The greeting is from the Level One hostess set Afterthoughts. Those of you who have this set or have seen it in the catalogue will know that there is a little phrase that normally goes under the word "birthday", however when I mounted this set I chose to trim that part of the stamp off and attach it to the side of the block. This way I can get two stamps for the price of one (well, the hostess sets are free, but you know what I mean), and if I want to add the little phrase, it's a piece of cake using my stamp positioner.

The Certainly Celery "bow" is attached using a Mini Glue Dot - these little things are incredibly handy for situations like this, where you have to add a little ribbon or something. The dots come on a roll, and are abour 4.8mm across, perfect for all sorts of uses.

And another rhinestone, just like last time. These things are just so darned cute!
