Head Over Heels Birthday Card!


Ever buy a stamp and then once you get home you are never quite sure what to do with it?  Well, that was my problem with this Penny Black Hedgehog stamp.  I have had it for ages, inked it up a couple of times but never knew what to use it for.  I think mostly it was trying to find a sentiment that would work with it.  So I just figured I would just use it as a birthday card and I am very happy with how it turned out.

I used the Simon Says Stamp medium tag dies and cut out the hedgehogs and attached them to the dies.  I made each tag stand out a bit more than the previous one using dimensional foam.  Then I added some ribbon to the tags and black ribbon to the background.  The doily is a Cheery Lynn Designs die called “French Pastry”.
