I was so excited when I got the email from Kim at eclectic Paperie inviting me to participate in their birthday blog hop! Even though I’m no longer on the design team, I still do a fair bit of shopping there :)

For my card today I started with some patterned paper from Authentique’s Grace 8 x 8 pad. I matted it with some MFT Primitive Cream card stock and popped it up on a Primitive Cream card stock base. To created the stripes on each side, I adhered a strip of 1/8” ScorTape on the left and 1/4” ScorTape on the right, then sprinkled some of the new Tim Holtz Distress Glitter in Broken China. I pressed it down really well onto the ScorTape before shaking it off and I love the way it looks! This glitter is not “glitter-y” if you know what I mean. It looks really vintage and I’m thinking I’ll be using it a lot in the future.

The sentiment is from LJD Birthday Greetings from MFT and was stamped on an MFT Die-namics Designer Labels 3 STAX die cut with Steel Gray ink and Blu Raspberry ink, popped up on Scotch Foam Mounting Tape. I finished off everything by sponging with Vintage Photo Distress ink.

Here’s the inside with another sentiment from LJD Birthday Greetings.
