CAS B-day card

The challenge over at Flourishes for their Release week challenge is to make a 10 Minute card. I really have had trouble in the past doing simple cards, but this came together very quickly once I decided what I wanted to do. (This  would also make a nice Father's Day card.)

I used a new Cuttlebug Embossing Folder called 'Pinking Borders'. I love this folder-soooo many possibilities! I used SU Whisper White and Navy cardstock. The stamp sets used are: Flourishes 'Kids Play' (the boy fishing and sentiment); Our Daily Bread "Sympathy' (cattails-just part of one stamped image); and Close to My Heart 'Perfect day' (birds). I stamped them with Versamark ink and used SU white embossing powder. I cut the blue to fit inside the embossed border and mounted it with foam tape. Quick and easy! I really like how it turned out.
We are having a baby shower next week for my 'great-grandson' Eli-one month old tomorrow! I am going to make up some card bundles to use as game prizes and door prizes. This will be one style that I will use as they really do work up quick and are really nice.
Hope you like. Please leave a comment.
