Birthday Card Using CTMH Say It With Style Special

Hello friends!  I hope you are doing well.  It is very cloudy in Southern CA today; but it does bring cooler temperatures.  

I have been creating a lot of cards lately, trying to use 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 Card 3 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 this card and then used the remaining plaid (I will post later) for another Slimline Birthday card.  The full plaid slimline is the bonus card (I am posting later) in the instructions. See links below listed under Supplies. 

I stamped my background with Mint ink using the cracked pattern from CTMH Design Elements D2196 (See link below).  I also inked my plaid circles and cupcakes around the edges.

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!

Thank you visiting my blog.  I hope you enjoy my creations.  I appreciate all of you.  Be sure to check out my tabs at the top of the page for my videos, tutorials, clubs, specials and  more. Call, text, Facebook message or email me with any questions you might have.

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!!
