I've been so sleep-deprived this week from working really hard in the studio, that I actually took a nap earlier. I rarely take a nap. I'm happy it's a 3-day weekend here.
This card is super simple and uses two designs I cut with my Silhouette machine: the happy birthday circle tag and the number 8. I can't remember the font I used for the 8. I trimmed off the tag holder part of the circle. For a finishing touch, I added a small star.
Just to remind you, you really get your value from the Silhouette machine because you can cut fonts you already have on your computer. Normally, I don't cut Papertrey Ink paper with my machine, since it is a heavier cardstock, but the machine easily cut the number 8 (it's a simple design). The kraft cardstock is a lighter weight cardstock, so the Silhouette easily cuts this intricate design.
I have some cool projects I'm working on this week. One of them involves stamps, ink, fabric, sewing, and batting (all on the same project). I'll let you know more later. Thanks for stopping by! Have a good one.
Paper: Orange Burst, Simply Chartreuse, & Lemon Tart (Papertrey Ink), Kraft (SU!)
Tools: Star punch (SU!), Silhouette cutter, Corner Chomper (We R Memory Keepers)
Other: white gel pen (Sakura), foam tape (3M)

This is such a groovy and beautiful card Anthonette. Thanks also for the tip about cutting fonts that are on our computer with the Silhouette. I didn't know I could do that!
I can't wait to see more about your current project (with the sewing and batting). It sounds very mysterious!
Adorable card - hope you've been able to get some rest!
Adorable indeed and I love the color combo you chose. I must find a way to hook up my Cricut Expression to my Mac... (sigh).
