World Card Making Day... never too late!

As World Card Making Day is coming to a close, I feel a little like the inevitable marathoner that finally crosses the finish line long after everyone else has. Lol. But I persevered and finished a card for my in-laws 67th anniversary coming up. (I added their anniversary number candles to the cake image.) It may be late for WCMD, but it's still about a week before I have to mail it so I'm pleased with that.

I used My Favorite Things stamp sets (What's Cooking, Time to Celebrate and Who's That Birthday Girl) and luscious Pink Paislee papers (Soiree and Daily Junque). I recently received a card that had a cool flap and it inspired me to recreate one of my own. This is an easel card with a front panel that flaps open. I just realized that I focused so much on the patterned papers that I didn't even use ribbon or glitter or bling. The inside of the flap highlights a section of paper that had a great cake and a party collage. I love making my paper work for me.
