happy birthday triangles


Howdy!  It's Amy T here sharing a birthday card.  I've been trying to build up my stash of birthday cards because I tend to leave those to the last minute.  


I've become the official birthday card maker at work.  It took me several months to start the tradition so about half of my co-workers received store bought {gasp!} cards.  To make matters worse, they were highly over priced ones from Whole Foods.  For those of you that aren't familiar with Whole Foods, it's called Whole Paycheck because of their prices.

Okay, so I think it is more stressful to make cards for non-crafters than for crafters, how about you?

This particular card has heat embossing, something that I never tire of.  I finally put my more heavily used embossing powders in a disposable container and have plastic spoons handy. In the past, I would do the heat embossing over a scrap piece of paper...I always made a mess and wasted a bunch of the powder.  

I think this card could be unisex, how about you?


I used Mister Huey's Sherbet & Garden.

I think that the matte gold sequins are suitable for a guy...not too shiny for them.



The Happy Birthday sentiment is from



*The muffin top sentiment makes me chuckle every time!

Tiny Triangles that's one popular stamp!


Remember, there's an "Email Me When Available" button if you're interested in something that is out-of-stock in the shop! 

Thanks for stoppin' by and have a terrific weekend!

  6. Definitely could be unisex Amy, but I will say it is fantastic!! Thanks for sharing your process! I have been to Whole Foods, the first one I went to was in Vancouver when they were very new to Canada. Yup pricey! This cad is way better than any store bought!

    1. Thanks Barb! If you really want to heat emboss you could always do it over a toaster...that's what I use to do before buying a heat gun :)
