Today is a very special day for the Lovebug Creations Creative Team.
It’s Zeni’s birthday! Write on!
To wish her a happy day we created birthday cards for her and I’m so excited to share mine with you! First, I have to tell you about the Lovebug Creations Rumple Ribbon. I used Princess Party Pink and Eyes of Blue.
I picked up a DCWV Stack at the craft store a while back and I’ve been waiting to use it. Zeni’s card seemed like the perfect opportunity! The Stack is called Vintage Collector and I am really fond of it because not only does it have images of vintage typewriters, which I collect (really, what don’t I collect?), but it also has pics of vintage cameras. And bottle caps, and inspirational sayings on chalk board and hot air balloons! It’s so cute and I adore the colors.
I tied the Lovebug Creations Rumple Ribbon into a sweet double bow and surrounded it with some girly accents from my stash. It needed just a little bit of fancy sparkle so I added some pearl-colored sequins. The paper stack came with a nice sentiment coming out of the typewriter but it wasn’t just right so I typed up my own and printed it out on vellum. I know I’m older than some of you but do you remember typing up letters back in the day on a typewriter and using paper so thin it was almost like tissue paper? I think they did that to save on postage when mailing letters overseas. Anyways, I’m such a stickler for random details so I just had to create what I had in my mind.
I’m crazy about how the pink and turquoise ribbon really create a burst of color for this card. I hope Zeni likes it!
Happy Birthday, Zeni, and I hope you celebrate all month long. Please leave a Happy Birthday greeting for Zeni to read and brighten her day! If you want to see the other amazing cards made for her you can see them on the Lovebug Creations Blog.
