Christmas Birthday

I happen to be one of those who have a birthday around Christmas, mine is December 26, and I love getting seasonal birthday cards but I know that not everyone does. I made a card today that is kind of half and half. I stamped some stripes because I wanted to participate in this week's Make It Monday challenge, over at the Papertrey Ink blog, which is to create a project with stamped stripes. It's Laurie Willison who is showing us how to do it with flair, and this is the beautiful card that she makes in the video ...


... and here is mine ...

  5. Oh, this is beautiful, Diana! My MIL's birthday is also on Dec. 26th. I usually try to wrap her gift in non-Christmas wrap and make her a non-Christmas birthday card. It never occurred to me to ask her if she'd like Christmas-themed birthday cards/wrap...

  6. Diana, this is stunning! My dh has a birthday the week before Christmas (which is usually a great weekend for new holiday movies at the theaters!). Anyone would LOVE this card, holiday birthday or not!

  9. LOVE the subtlety of the background stripes!! Such a beautiful card, Diana. I must get these rose stamps out again--they really are pretty, especially over the leaves. You're a Christmas baby (almost), eh? No wonder you're such a happy soul ;)
