Last card of 2012! True Fashion - Birthday Card

It's New Years Eve so this will be the last post and card of the year 2011!

I love the look of Graphic 45 papers but have a hard time cutting them up. The sheet I used for these cards had a set of 12 images that I was able to cut up and use for cards so it was a little easier to allow myself to take the paper to the trimmer.

Supplies Used:
Graphic 45 Fashionista
Various Cardstock
Stampin Up Scallop Circle Punch
Grosgrain Ribbon, Blueberry
Colorbox Cateye Chalk Ink
Janome Sew Mini
Microsoft Word
Hallmark Card Studio

I matched the font from Micrsoft Word to the font in Hallmark Card Studio so the sentiments on the front and inside would match. I can't remember the font right now but I wanted one that would give the flair of the fashion era on the card. I can actually imagine giving this card to anyone of my girlfriends and them loving it!

Since the image was rather large I didn't have a lot of room for embellishing and I thought the circle sentiment went well on the card. I did add two little brads at the bottom and it just set it off just right.


  1. I love this card! This could be a perfect set of just everyday note cards as well. Your cards inspire me so much! I do have one question though, when you create your sentiments in Word, how do you get the words in the middle? I know how to do the circle thing but I am at a loss for the center placement. Thanks so much for helping!

  2. This is a gorgeous card, Okie. I love the paper, I can see why it's hard for you to cut it, LOL!

  3. Beautiful card and the paper is gorgeous. TFS

    I wish you and your family a very blessed and happy new year.

  4. What a gorgeous card... I remember "long" ago you explained how you did the message in a circle... but of course i don't remember.. i will have to have you explain it to me on the cruise... (how many days do we have left?)...
