Take Three Birthday



Today is my youngest daughter's 9th birthday! 
I cannot believe my baby is nine years old already.  I love that she's more independent, brilliant and beautiful each year, but it's still bittersweet...KWIM?

I made her a simple card using the Take Three Die that was released last month.  I cut the patterned paper and card front at the same time.  I stamped two images from Everyday Classics in the *windows* (on the inside of the card) and then the sentiment over the middle image.  Quick and easy!  My youngest DD loves to make cards with me and knowing her she'll totally want to CASE this to make her sister a birthday card for next week.

Have a great weekend!

Great idea to create window with the die! I love the little images stamped within each window!

Very Pretty! I ;ove what you did here with the "Take Three" die. It really is gorgeous. When I first looked at the picture, it seemed as if the squares were chipboard or something even thicker......then as I read, I realized it was the die. Took me a minute to adjust my eyes/thinking.....lol
