Just Skating By…

 jannie-skating-bday1 It’s not every day you get to make a birthday card for someone using stamps they designed! And now that I know she’s received it, I can share it with you!

When I saw the magical marquee card that Diana Gibbs made a couple of weeks ago, I couldn’t wait to make one, so I followed her link to JanTink’s awesome tutorial. As luck would have it, the designer of these stamps (Jannie Ho) had a birthday coming up, and these little guys from Just Skating By were perfect for what I had in mind.

Now here’s the magic — when you open the card, this is what you see:


Fun!!!! And not as difficult as it looks, especially with JanTink’s tutorial. I had to hand write the greeting inside, because even though I have 65 million stamps, I didn’t have a “happy birthday” with the right kind of font! And that birthday cake in the middle? That’s a sneak peek from Jannie’s new set that will be released exclusively by i {heart} papers next week.

Jannie, I hope you loved the card as much as I loved making it! And I hope your birthday was as special as you are!

I loved it!! I really want to make a card thats interactive like that! (and of course, it was fun to see my stamps in use too!) Thank you so much for your gift too, it will get some good use. I'm experimenting....
