Spring Time Birthday Hugs

Hi everyone! Monica here from Taylormadecards4u. We have been enjoying some fantastic weather here in Phoenix, We need to enjoy it while we can, because in just a few months we will be well into the  100's...Oh Boy!  But today I am here to share with you one of my favorite types of cards...my passport cards. 

I just love love love making these cards. They are so versatile and can work for so many occasions. I cry every time I sell one as they are each made with such care and personal touches.

This image I had from Create with TLC and I used several of So Suzy Stamps throughout the card. I went with a Parisian birthday theme using an eiffel tower and Bonjour sentiment. I happen to already have an Eiffel tower stamp, but you can also find one in So Suzy's store in her Paris Collection.

I love her sentiments. They are just the right size. I really like the smaller sentiments. They are perfect and do not take over in your project, but are added elements when creating. Don't be afraid to try unique/different stamps. One might wonder how to use the sentiment Breathe, but this is my second design I have used it in. It is a creative way of saying relax and enjoy! 

 As you can see I also added washi tape, a punch out butterfly and some rub on's from Tim Holtz. I always add some sort of tab on the middle panel. It is a fun way to turn to the next page. 

Now these cute little girls get a lot of stamping. It is one of my favorite stamps called Sisterhood. As you can see I added another Parisian element in the corner using the Paris Post Mark.

And of course you MUST always decorate the backside of your passport card. 

Well, I hope you like my card. Don't forget there still are a few days left to play along in our birthday theme'd challenge. And as always you can find more inspiration by following us on InstagramFacebookPinterest and Twitter.
