AAA Cards Game #116 – 4th Birthday

Hello and welcome! I’m here with a birthday celebration for AAA Cards.

If you are participating in our blog hop then should have landed here from Maaike’s blog.

 

Check out our fabulous set of generous sponsors.

Thank you to all our wonderful sponsors.

Special tips for competing (and being eligible to win) in this game:

  1. As always, we’re looking for Clean and Simple (CAS) greeting cards.
  2. As always and for all of our games our definition of Clean and Simple means that white space should not be patterned, embossed or textured.

Here’s my birthday card using some of one of sponsor’s, STAMPlorations, products.

 

I recycled a bird mask for this card. I used it on 2 other cards that you have seen here before.

I love finding interesting ways to recycle masks. I wanted to increase the number of male-friendly cards in my stash and the bird seemed to fit the bill.

I simply added a die cut panel to the card base and adhered the ombré die cut ‘birthday’ for the bird to perch on. I stamped ‘happy’ and was finished.

I hope that you enjoyed visiting today and hope that you’ve been inspired to join in the birthday bash.
