Birthday card ~ Simple

Hello all…sorry that I didn’t get my posts on Monday/Wednesday/Friday last week. I finally broke down today and went to the doctor for the kidney stone. We’ll see if the medication helps.

Today’s card is VERY simple! I had bought some stamps and dies from Emma at My Creative Time and wanted to try them out. You know you’re feeling bad when you get new craft toys and don’t experiment with them for almost a week!


I was trying to make a masculine card, but after I added the sentiment and die cuts I thought it looked a bit too much like a flower, so maybe not great for a man’s birthday card.


This one is very similar, just different doodling on the green part. And, now I see from my picture, that the bottom left corner isn’t adhered very well! Ha ha…..better fix that!

These cards are made with just a paper trimmer and the MCT die and stamp. The “to you!” stamp is one that I have in my stash…something I picked up at Hobby Lobby. No Cricut involved on this project.


This isn’t my favorite project ever, but it was quick and since I wasn’t feeling great it was at least something I could do to start experimenting with my new stuff from My Creative Time. I must admit…this is the first purchase I made from a blog that I follow. I’ve watched a couple of the “bigger” bloggers and their product lines for a while now, but I really loved the banner die/stamp set that Emma was releasing. I added a “few” more items and placed the order. I was really happy with how fast the order was shipped out and so far I am LOVING everything that I’ve had the time to use.

FYI….this is NOT any type of paid endorsement for My Creative Time. I ordered, paid full price, and am now just giving you my honest feedback! If you’re interested in the product line, click HERE and browse around. I really like the die sets. I NEED to get into my craft room this week and play with the banner set, which is what prompted me to order in the first place!

Have a crafty day….
