Special Day Today...

Hi All,

Nicole here today with a fun project for you using some journaling cards. I love all the cards in the kits but I don't actually do any journaling or documenting. So I love to use the cards on other craft projects instead. For this card I used two of the journaling cards to create a birthday card. You can see the cards I used here in the Sarah Hurley kits. I used a large 4" x 6" card for by card background and then a 3" x 4" card for the panel on the front.

The small card had the word today on it. So I took some stamps from the Sentiments Stamp Set and placed them above and below the word Today.

I stamped these in embossing ink and embossed with white powder.

I then used the Triangle stencil from Sarah Hurley to add a bit more interest. I used peacock feathers ink for this.
 I love this random triangle stencil and the fun pattern it gives the card.
I used the tiny star in the sentiment set to stamp into the middle of all the circles on the background journaling card.

I then added a thin grey strip of paper to either side of the small card to ground it in place.

Here is the finished card, fun and bright and cheery!

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you get inspired to get using those unused journaling cards up!
