Belated Birthday Greetings – by Deb Saaranen

Deb is sharing a super lovely belated birthday card today using our NEW Birthday Sentiments, some gorgeous NEW paper and a tried and true die set she has used often (which happens to be ON SALE!). Take a look:

So very {{{ lovely }}}. This is another card that just speaks to my heart!

That beautiful paper is from My Mind’s Eye and is called Gingham Farm.

Also note that Deb often uses watercolor paper even when she is not watercoloring. Today the card base, the oval and the sentiment are all watercolor paper. Doing so gives such a rich and textural feel to Deb’s cards.

The die set used as the focal point is by Spellbinders and is called Laurel and Bee.

Deb has used this small Die D-Lites set so often over the years and all of her creations with it are equally as lovely.

For today’s card she used a sheet of designer paper in the pad to cut it – so pretty and it all coordinates so well!

Here’s the card inside which uses a sentiment for belated birthday wishes.

Honestly, I think most of my birthday cards go out late — gee — so I am really loving the belated wishes stamps included in our NEW Birthday Sentiments.

You can find Deb’s post on her blog here.
