We're not even to the end of January, but I'm looking towards spring already, and made this card that I can use for the many spring birthdays coming up this year. When I think of spring, I think of pastels, so I used these sweet papers from a collection last year by Simple Stories called Baby Steps. The stamps on my card are from one of my favorite sets "Fly Free".
I stamped the birdcage and white embossed it, cut it out using a Nesties Labels 18 die, and then punched some Martha Stewart butterflies to add more dimension. I used a light brown ink for the sentiment because that color was in the plaid background paper, and I wanted to keep the soft feel going.
I hope my card inspires you to pull out some stamps and get ahead on your birthday cards during these long days of winter!
