As I make cards for OWH, I stamp the backs, tuck them in envelopes, and store them in the shipping box divided up by theme. One reason I do this is it saves me time when the box is full. Another reason I do this is to make sure I'm getting a good variety of themes made. I tend to make oodles and oodles of love cards if I don't make an effort to switch it up. I noticed that the birthday section of my box was very small, so I decided to make a kit of 12 of these birthday cards. There were lots of layers to cut for this card, so it wasn't a quick kit to assemble, but I like the final look. I also did the corner punching for the sentiment and adhered those two layers together. My friends will just need to adhere the layers and make the ribbon embellishment.
This is OWH Sketch #107 turned sideways. Just for fun, here's the first card I made with this sketch when it was posted in February.
The papers are from a KI Memories pack I've had for a while. Ribbon is old MS. The stamp is from my favorite set of Inkadinkado sentiments.
