B-Day Banner


I've just returned form a wonderful weekend away on Whidbey Island. I was to participate in the Whidbey Island Marathon and celebrate my husbands birthday. I was able to join lots of friends and family who were out for their first shot at a 1/2 marathon. Due to an injury I was able to both support and join them for about 10 miles of the course. They all did AMAZING!


With Jay's Birthday in mind I made a birthday themed card for the Papertrey Ink's Make it Monday challenge. This was all about using your dies as masks. I used my banner maker die from PTI to make a mask on printer paper. Then I used a little re-positional adhesive to secure it to the front of the cardstock. Sponged it in with blue ink and then used a whole mess of PTI Birthday sentiments in the blue, green, and orange to make a festive card for a little boy. The best part is, it's just one layer save for that little border of green up top! I stamped the candles on the green and added yellow glitter for "flame".


I can't wait to see what everyone else makes this week for the challenge! Check out more samples here and give the crafters some love. Thanks for stopping by!
