Heavenly Holiday

For unto us this day, in the city of Anaheim, Laura Weed was born; we shall sing and rejoice!  

Happy Birthday, Laura!

For those of you who don't know, Laura wears many hats at Stampendous.  Her favorite, of course, is her cowgirl hat she wears when she has to round up this herd (a.k.a. Design Team).  Well, that's just my opinion so, for now, we'll just go with it!  Laura, I hope you have a wonderful birthday, please know you are loved and appreciated by many!

My card today features the Stampendous Laurel Burch Heavenly Holiday Set.  This is such a pretty stamp set with some lovely sentiments to go with the beautiful images.  They're a lot of fun to color, too!

Here's what I used to create this card:

Red Cardstock by Bazzill Basics Paper®
Copic® Markers
Zip Dry Paper Glue by Beacon Adhesives®
3D Foam Squares by Scrapbook Adhesives®

Here's what I did to create this card:
  1. Trim white piece of paper to 4"w x 5 1/4"h, stamp ribbon image as shown and color
  2. On a separate piece of white paper, stamp birds and color
  3. Die cut birds and set aside
  4. Create your A2 card base with a tent fold from red cardstock
  5. Adhere colored panel to card base and stamp sentiment as shown
  6. Using foam squares, attach birds

This is such an easy card to create if you're looking for something to mass produce.  I had fun making my birds colorful in the Laurel Burch style that I love!  Color does make my soul happy!

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I appreciate you're taking a look and really appreciate any and all feedback.  I'll see you again on Friday with some more Laurel Burch inspiration.  In the meantime, enjoy your week.
