Bright Happy Birthday Card by Wendy Kessler

Happy Father's Day card by Wendy KesslerSupplies used are all Close to My Heart: Framed Stamp Set (August SOTM), Zoe Paper Packet, Cardstock (Whisper, White Daisy, Sorbet), Inks (Slate, Sweet Leaf, Sorbet), Zoe Complements, Slate Diagonal Striped Ribbon, and Coral Shimmer Trim.

Here are a bunch of cards that I put together using some scraps from the Zoe WOTG Kit.  I also worked at using up the zip strips.  I plan to use these as birthday cards and circle the date for whoever I send the card to, like I did on the Father’s Day card.  The Zoe papers have a great variety colors that can be used for so many different occasions!  Pair it with the Framed Stamp Set and there are endless possibilities!

Now “Hop” on over to Melissa Robinson’s Blog to see her work! Be sure to visit all the Consultants at their Blogs to get some great crafting ideas and other fun ideas! Remember, the Framed Stamp Set is only available through the end of August!

This set is available on my website for only $5 with a $50 purchase.  Shop now!
