My niece is turning 18 tomorrow and I needed an appropriate birthday card to send her. I thought I might try the “Cool Aunt” way with a trendy card…and a check, of course.
Yes…I’m using a hashtag and not calling it a pound sign. I have the arrows, the baker’s twine, the pop of color and a pretty clean and simple card. Cool, no?
Stampin’ Up! came out with some fun and trendy stamp sets in the last catalog and I do find that I can’t resist using them. I just love the simplicity that they offer.
The background that I’ve used is the Sheer Perfection Designer Vellum that I got for free by placing an order of $50 online at mystampingstore.com! It’s only available until the end of March. Don’t miss getting this fabulous set of printed vellum for free!

My card was designed using this week’s Paper Craft Crew sketch. I love the weekly challenge of these sketches.
You can see that I eliminated a couple of elements since I was using fairly busy papers. I just couldn’t resist using these great papers! I love making the designer paper the major portion of my card with the stamped image being a small pop of color on the card to draw your attention to it.
