Hello The Rubber Cafe' Fans! Hope you are having a great week so far! Today I took a break from my frenzied Christmas Card making and made a super cute birthday card using the December Creative Cafe' Kit of the Month - Wish Big with the Birthday Wishes add-on set. This was such a fun card to make. I did some paper piecing and just alittle bit of coloring on the owls.
Here is a close-up of my card! I really love the colors that are in the paper pad included in this month's kit! So cute! I paper pieced the balloons and the little envelope that the owl is holding in his beak. One of the ways I utilize as much paper from the kit as possible is that I don't throw any of my scraps away. I know it gets kinda hard to keep track of them but I have a cello bag that I put them in and I staple it to the back of my paper pad to hold the scraps. Then when I go to paper piece, I am sure to find just the right paper to use.
This card was super easy to make but it looks like you really worked a long time to make it! My favorite type of card! Hope my tip helps you get the most of your paper from this kit!!
