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 ...
