Polk-a-dot Birthday!

It's pretty snowy here so I thought I'd create a bright and cheery card. Maybe the snow will take a hint and take a hike :)

I was tempted to use the new Honeycomb embossing folder again but thought I should really switch things up. So I went with the Polka-a-dot embossing folder to coordinate with the circles on the designer series paper.

I have to say that I think the Pinwheel Sizzlit absolutely adorable! I live that pinwheel! It's new in the Spring catalogue.
Pinwheel Sizzlit (#129411, $5.95)

Stamping with Rach Tips & Tricks
  • This particular card is square in shape. Finished size is 5" x 5".
  • Add dimensionals behind "Happy Birthday" so it's elevated off the card along with the pinwheel.
  • Add a brad to the middle of the pinwheel to keep it together.
  • Sponge Melon Mambo on the card stock that says "Happy Birthday".
