Neon Birthday Card

Saturday, July 13, 2013

What is with this week? Not one, but two of my best ladies have birthdays this week! Nana's birthday is the 9th and Tara, my bestie, was born on the 13th. 

So today we're in Austin to celebrate. I'm scheduling this beforehand, so I have no idea what we're up to. But I'm sure we're having fun. And by now, she'll have seen The Note mini I made for her. I'm sure we laughed and giggled and smiled as we went through it. 

Here's the birthday card I made to go with her gift:
It's bright! Just like the book. I created this custom "print" by taking some of our silliness and repeating it over and over again. I printed it on vellum and it's the cover page for the mini book, but it's a bit hard to see. So I printed it out on white cardstock to make her card.
I used a lot of the same things I used in the mini book to create the card and decided I like to do things just on the edges of paper. So two strips of washi on both the cover and inside pages worked the best.

I stamped birthday on the chipboard speech bubble and added those great transparent letter stickers over top for the sentiment.
Lastly, I misted with those awesome neon mists from SC. First time using them and I have to say, they're pretty awesome.

Now just to write in the card and wrap up the presents! Can't wait to have a weekend of play in Austin!!

cheers & besos,
