Starburst Sayings Birthday Card & Glassine Gift Card Bag CCMC296

Pin It Now! Hey crafty friend, thanks for stopping by!  Today I'm using a color combo from Create With Connie & Mary: Pacific Point, Summer Starfruit, and Smoky Slate.  I knew right away I wanted to make a  birthday gift set.  A glassine bag gift card holder and matching card...
I cut the center strip to allow an opening for the starburst circles in the middle for a cool dimensional effect. The twine runs around the card and through the circle. I love these wooden embellishments, they are SO fun!
Oh, how I love the hardwood stamp!  Love, love, love.
Above is a little tip on making the wooden arrows longer...just snap it in half!  I glued each end behind the "celebrate" circle and no one is the wiser!  As you can see, I just kept layering pieces until I was satisfied with the look. It got a thumbs up from my 13yo son, so I'm happy!
I had plenty of scraps leftover, so I made one more card.  I actually like this one best.  Clean and simple. I'll probably use this one for a graduation card.
