CFS Feature - Totally Awesome Teen Birthday Card

 

Hi Folks! Well, it's summer, the kiddos are out of school, and crafting time is at a premium around here. Luckily (?!?) it was raining one day and I was able to have a ton of fun in my craft room. Here's one of those cards. The papers are from American Crafts (Dear Lizzy) 5th & Frolic line.

Aside from the MFT Dienamics High Rise die cut letters, the remaining stamps and dies are from CAS-ual Fridays Stamps:

Wait for it
 Heart Board Fri-Dies
Linked Fri-Dies




Since the Heart Board die makes 5 hearts at once, there's often a good opportunity to embellish the inside of the card (or your envelope) with any left-overs for a coordinated look. In this case, there were two hearts left over, so I used them to enhance the sentiment and to contain the closing signatures.



This is a card that will get used right away (hooray!!) so I made a coordinating envelope while I had everything still out. I'm really liking making vertical envelopes recently (you pull a vertical card out on the folded side). It doesn't cost any more money or time, but it's just a little bit different.

This card is over at the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps blog today.

Thanks for looking!
