Peaceful Moments Birthday Card

Hello stamping friends! Today, I wanted to share with you a card that I made for my team swaps this month. Our theme was “Birthdays” which was a lot of fun, since those seem to be the cards I need the most. I can’t seem to stop using the Peaceful Moments Stamp Set and Poppy Moments Dies right now. It’s so perfect for so many occasions. 

If you have visited me before, it is no secret that I really enjoy making cards with lots of details, embellishments and layers. However, those cards can be a little more challenging to  mail because of the bulk. One thing I am really trying to challenge myself to do more often is to create more “mailable” cards that are are a little more simple to make. Because sometimes, you just don’t have 2 hours to make a card, right? Ha! 
Simple does NOT have to be boring, though! The Painted Poppies Designer Series Paper is absolutely gorgeous and makes it easy to create a great focal point for your card without a lot of fuss. The only stamping on this card are the two sentiments, one on the front and one inside. Of course, I had to add a pop of sparkle from my favorite ribbon and colored rhinestones. You can never go wrong when bling is involved!
