another birthday card
my baby sister turned 21 this year. i think she's officially all grown up. :)
i sent her a card - yes, late! - but also sent a bunch of goodies with it to make up for it. so we're good.
i used BasicGrey's Sweet Threads collection - of course. :) gotta break it in right! almost EVERYTHING is from that collection - all the paper, solid & patterned, the sticker on the card front, the sticker border on the envelope front, even the letter stickers. i used Paper Smooches Word Salad stamp set to stamp the sentiment in versamark, then embossed in white. then, i took a rag/paper towel/whatever you have on hand, and, after marking on the rag with a purple marker, rubbed it across the embossed sentiment to really make it pop. the embossed image resists the marker, so it looks like you just stacked the words on top of the smudging.
which, now that i think about it, you probably could've done, too.
anyway. hope you're having a good week! my wisdom teeth are coming out today, so don't laugh at me when i show up in a viral video making a fool of myself, okay? thanks.
