Milestone events abound this time of year. Graduations, Father's Day, birthdays, and throw in a bridal shower, and a wedding at the end of August Reasons for me to get out my card making supplies. I printed an image of old newsprint from the Internet, and used the following rubber stamps: Happy Birthday Stamp by Crystal Kluge from the Paper Source, and Gift Girl Stamp by Paper Candy, and I embossed both the lettering and the girl. I just picked up Ranger's Embossing Powder in Liquid Platinum. It's a bit more subtle than gold and I love it. For the bride-to-be, I again used the Ranger Liquid Platinum Embossing Powder with this dress stamp (brand worn off), and the Sparkle stamp from Stampin' Up!. I added a bit of tulle, ribbon and Mt Japanese Washi Tape. I was inspired by these beautiful gift tags from AnneMarie Paperie on Etsy, but knew I wouldn't have time to order them for the shower. Finally, for my youngest's upcoming birthday, I decided to use what I had out, though she currently defines herself as "Boho", I think she'll still appreciate it.
