12/8 Saturday RAKs & a Birthday Card


You just never know when someone will make your day with a RAK! I got two card fronts on Saturday from Leah Quist. What a pleasant surprise!! Thanks so much, Leah, for thinking of me and sending me these cuties!

I played with my Big Shot this weekend and decided to make a couple of birthday cards using the Swirly Die Cut. This is the first card I made. I created swirls in Chocolate Chip and Old Olive and then layered them. Looks like a lot of swirling smoke, doesn't it? Well, that's bound to happen the older you get! lol!

This next card uses the scrap from one of the swirls.

I think I like this card even better than the first. What do you think? Both cards were quite fun to make. You won't find this set pictured in the current catalog, but it is still available for ordering from our Dormant List.

Supplies I used on the birthday candle cards:

Stamps: Big Birthday Candle
Paper: Old Olive, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White, Haiku DSP
Ink: Basic Black, Old Olive, So Saffron, Tangerine Tango
Accessories: Photo Corner Punch, Swirly Die Cut, Big Shot Machine, Paper Piercer and the Mat Pack, Dimensionals, Earth Elements Brads, Blender Pen to put the Tangerine Tango onto the candle flame
