For my project, I decided to make a birthday card. I used the names of the months as my back round stamp. I just loaded all of the stamps on one block, and then randomly stamped the stamp around the card. I used a piece of black card stock, a couple pieces of Shimmer trim (love this!!), 3 rolled flowers, and bling. For the flowers, I cut them at 3", and they are on the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge. The flower is on pg 70.. font<tag5>
I stamped Happy Birthday using White Daisy pigment ink. The birthday stamp is from the Art Philosophy bundle.
