Happy Birthday Megan

I have made this card for a girl at work Megan who is 18 tomorrow. I decided to use the side stepper fold and stuck to a black and white colour scheme. The papers I have used are all scraps and off cuts from my scraps folder.

Attention To Detail:

The little forever friends bear stamps are from the "Glitter Pot" and were coloured with my promarkers: Ivory, Vanilla, Saffron, Dusky Pink, cool grey 1-5 and Black. The birthday recipe stamp is from "Lili Of The Valley" stamps.

I also used a "Penny Black" sentiment stamp inside the card and added a second bear. I embellished the card with black ribbon from my stash and clear gems.


I am entering this card into the following challenges

Jules Crafty Snippets - #20 (JFF).
Craft Your Days Away - #20 White plus one (Black & White).
Crafty Catz - #83 Anything Goes.
Totally Papercrafts - #67 Don't Be Square.

  7. A fab card.Thanks for sharing this with us at

  8. Never thought of using the snippets quite as well as this - your card is lovely. your snippets sound as if they are much more organised than mine are. They were once all colour co-ordinated but seem to have over taken the system somewhere along the line. More snippet organising seems to be in order.
    Thanks for the comment on my cards
