Bugaboo Birthday Card with Paper Lace

When I saw this digi stamp on the Bugaboo website, I knew exactly the card I would make using it and the person who would receive it!! I colored this stamp using my new Promarkers my mom gave me for Christmas! Simply LOVE them and my mom for buying them for me!!

To make this card, I cut a piece of cream colored cardstock at 6" x 12" and scored it at 4" and 8". I used my bone scorer to fold it into three sections and then used a Martha Stewart Border Punch on the front of the card. I then covered the front with purple pattern paper (try saying that three times real fast) and used the same punch on the edge as I used on the cream cardstock. I placed ribbon around the card to hold it closed when tied and then cut one purple mat and one cream mat to go under the digi stamp. I pop dotted Happy Birthday on the front.

As you open the card, you will see the word "Celebrate" cut at 1" using the Paper Lace cartridge - Page 68. On the far left side of the card is the sentiment and then for the center of card, I cut Happy Birthday located on Page 53 of the Paper Lace at 3".

If you've been thinking about purchasing the Paper Lace cartridge and havent' yet, let me recommend it to you. You'll love it - so go ahead and order it!!! You won't regret it (now how's that for enabling?).
