Stamp, Scrap & Doodle Saturday

Happy Saturday! You know what that means, it is time for another SSDS challenge. Our challenge this week is to make a birthday card and our sponsor is Glitz Design. They are offering a wonderful paper pack for the prize this week. My card is made with paper, rub ons and bling all from Glitz Design. This card is called a Double Diagonal Pocket card and made with one piece of paper. You can watch how to make it here. I cut a 12x12 to 8 1/2 X 11 and folded it. Some paper does not work but Glitz was fantastic. It is heavy but folds without tearing. This is a two sided paper. I cut out the sentiment that is on the inside with a Cricut Solutions Cartridge called Sans Serif. There are tags in the pockets. One is stamped with a CTMH stamp and the other one has a gift card on it. The flowers were white and I colored them with Copic markers to match the paper. I love the word "smile" in rhinestones, which is from Glitz Design. Someone asked if the rhinestones came in a strip and I bent them into that shape. I guess you could do that but this was a lot easier.

We had a fantastic turn out last week for our challenge and the cards were wonderful. I sure hope you will join us at SSDS this week. You always need an extra birthday card and you may just win a paper pack from Glitz Design.

This card also works for:
Meljen's Designs Challenge #2 - girly colors
For Fun Challenge - April Showers bring May Flowers
Simple Doodles - Inspire Others
Crafty Creations - Anything Goes

If you haven't become a follower or signed up for my celebration go here and sign up. You could win a punch and a stamp set. I am getting close to 100 follower and that means another stamp set will be given away. Good Luck and....


Thanks for stopping,

What a happy card! Love how you created the "SMILE" sentiment, (just re-read your post,it comes this way?). Any who, the inside looks as good as the outside.

Hey Linda, I really love the layout of your card, and of course I love the paper you used:0).. Thanks for the sweet comment you left on my blog.. Well, to answer you question about my blog. The header and my blinkie were designed by a web page designer, but my background is a free one..
