Another DIY Birthday Card

Just popping in with a quick post today to share a card I made for my grandmother this weekend for her birthday.

I think that sometimes with cards simpler is better. This card is made from few pieces but I think it still has big impact. The backing papers (the flowers and the circles) are actually both from the same jumbo tag that I cut up so I could layer them. On top of them I added a little index card embellishment that I inked and paper letters to spell out HAPPY. I thought just that word was enough to get the sentiment across!

And if you’re a regular reader then you’ll recognize this birthday hat sticker since I seem to work them into all my birthday cards. They are just so cute and add just the right festive touch. I only have one or two left though so I’m going to have to start searching the stores for another package!

On another note, I’m excited to say that this is my 300th blog post! Sugar and Shimmer is coming up on its second birthday this month – I can’t believe how fast the time has gone by :)
