Our super fabulous guest designer, Paige Evans, is back with us again today to share two great cards she made using our Sweet Shoppe and Pinwheel collections.
Happy Birthday Card
How to: Punch starbursts from an assortment of papers from the Sweet Shoppe and Pinwheel collections and arrange them evenly spaced across a cream cardstock card base. Stitch double circles around three of the starbursts. Add a pink "happy birthday" sticker to an aqua label sticker, place a bow tied with gray baker's twine at the top, and adhere the embellishment on the right edge; trim any excess.

How to: Stitch a double border with white thread around a dark gray cardstock card base. Punch squares from the Pinwheel collection, fold the opposite corners of each square in to create a diamond, then arrange the diamonds across the card base in three rows. Layer label stickers, letter stickers, a flower fabric brad, and red striped button on the right edge to create a focal point and sentiment.
