Birthday Card Using CTMH "It's Your Birthday" Stamp & Thin Cuts

Hello friends!  I hope you are doing well.  It is sunny in Southern CA today; but it has been cooler temperatures the past few days.    

I have been playing with my new CTMH products.  I created this card with the new CTMH Say It With Style "It's Your Birthday" Cardmaking workshop guide.  You can purchase the products you want individually or at a discount in a bundle.  The guides are on my CTMH website, so you can save them to your computer.  I also print mine; as it is much easier to work with.

I had a lot of fun creating two slimline cards with this set.  This card is the bonus card in the instructions. I used the CTMH Plaid Card Front Stencils CC9239. There are 2 - A2 stencils and 2 - slimline stencils.  I used the Slimline to create a slimline plaid background, cut out the 4 circles to create the previous card and then used the remaining plaid for this Slimline Birthday card.  So one plaid slimline becomes 2 slimline cards.  See links below listed under Supplies. 

I finish most of my cards inside; but the inside I created could actually be used for a front.  LOL!  I just have fun creating both front and inside for my cards.  I use the cardmaking instructions as a guide; but rarely create them as shown.  LOL!

Click here for my new CTMH Videos. I added CTMH Workspace Wonder products to my desk a few years ago; and I was not able to use my video recorder on my desk after I did that.  It took me a long time to finally come up with a way to do videos with that same recorder; but on a different arm/holder.  Thanks for your patience. 

Remember - Keep On Creating!!
It's Good For Your Health!!
