Blog Series: Birthday Cards

This week, I'm going to do a series of blog entries showcasing the birthday cards we'll be making at my upcoming birthday card making class.  Details for the class are at the end of this post. I still have a few openings, so contact me TODAY if you'd like to come!

Today's card is a CASE of a card made by one of my stampin' inspirations--Shana Gaff.  My BFF Lynn and I met Shana at last year's Stampin' Up convention and I've been following her blog ever since.  I love Shana's clean and simple (CAS) style.  When I saw this card on her blog, I knew I would copy and share everything (CASE) about it!  Because I'm doing a birthday card making class, I changed the sentiment, which means I needed to use a larger banner framelit, so I skipped the ribbon.  I also changed the candy dots on Shana's card to one of the new metal buttons from the Occasions mini catalog. And I used a different embossing folder--but the layout and idea is ALL Shana's.  (I hope you like her style 'cause you'll be seeing a little something-something from her again this week!)
