Open Banner Birthday Card

Good morning friends

Today's share is another quick Birthday card for my Mom. This time I didn't add any pen work or add any backing patterned paper - and I was very happy with the clean and simple look. Again, I made two identical cards but only photographed one of them.

The key to making a card like this is to use a nice, heavyweight card stock. It wouldn't have the same appeal if the card stock were 'flimsy'. I have heavy card stock from Papertrey Ink that I love. And I hoard it because the cost of shipping to Canada is outrageous. However, my friend "B" shared a sheet of 110# card stock that she picked up (with a coupon) at Michaels. OMGoodness - it's perfect!

Heavy White card stock - Recollections
Banner die - We R Memory Keepers
Happy Birthday - Stampin' Up
MISTI - My Sweet Petunia
Inside words - My Favorite Things
Easel Die - Elizabeth Craft Designs and patterned paper (K & Company)

Card size - both, A2

Thanks for stopping by today


  1. this die ist so nice

  2. I like this card so much and would like to CASE it. I tried to find the banner die but am not finding it. I did find that We R Memory Keepers has a banner punch board but looks like it is too big. Would you mind giving the product number. Thank you

    1. Hi Judy. I was a little worried, since this banner die was a gift from a friend ... but I did find it listed at Scrapbook.com and will post the link here for you. I first bought the chevron (thinking masculine cards) and it worked SO well I had to buy the circle one too. It was a Great Debate with myself as to whether or not to get the banner instead of the circle. Good thing I went with the circle one, as I didn't know my friend had picked up the banner one for me since she knows I love banners! It cut through the heavy card stock like butter - I'm very impressed with the quality. Ok - here's your link:
