Forever Birthday Wishes

Hello again Stampin' Friends.

Did you see the Holiday Forever stamps this year?  I think they are wonderful stamps for any time, not just Christmas.  We bought a lot and sent a lot of Chirstmas cards.  What to do with that piece that's left on the sheet?

This week's CAS challenge over at SCS is to use Wild Wasabi, Kraft (Crumb Cake), Chocolate Chip & White.  This leftover from the stamps has all those colors but the Crumb Cake!  I cut out the pine cone a bit.  It was a way to cut the writing off and I like the way the pine cone hangs off the design.  I was able to mat it with scraps of Wild Wasabi & Chocolate Chip.

I inked the Sanded Background stamp with Crumb Cake and stamped on the Crumb Cake card base, stamped the sentiment and quickly had another card for one of the guys in my life.

Card Recipe
Stamps:  Sanded, Sincere Salutations
Ink:  Chocolate Chip
Paper:  Crumb Cake, Chocolate Chip, Wild Wasabi
Accessories:  Paper Snips

By the way, I just went over to Just Add Ink to link my Emmy card.  The link has closed!  I keep forgetting that it's tomorrow over there!

Oh, this is very handsome. That pine cone makes a great masculine or Christmas card. I also like the way the cone hangs off.
