I was packing up a batch of cookies to send off to a special birthday boy (OK really he's 82) when I realized I hadn't made him a card (I have a box of cards that I've previously made, but they are all feminine). So I scrambled to my scrap room, grabbed my Imaginisce Build-a-Card pad, selected the card stock you see here (cuz it's a cheery, colorful, birthday kind of pattern) adhered the American Crafts "happy birthday" ribbon, then picked out a stamped image that I had laying around, already colored, and found a sentiment stamp that coordinated with it. I stamped it, then inked the edges, adhered them and DONE! True story I swear. That is why I LOVE the Build-a-Card pad, it can make creating a card as easy or complicated as you want. A variety of great patterned, pre-scored card stock that you can jazz up as much as you desire or use the ready made sentiment stickers(that are included) and be done in no time.
BTW, the image is a TAC stamp and I colored it with watercolor pencils (just in case anyone was wondering) I'm still learning how to color (just like my 4 y/o ;) ) and I've got a new set of markers coming, so you might be seeing more colored images from me as I'll be needing the practice.
