Seize the Birthday #248


Hello Crafty Friends. As I'm typing this we are under a tropical storm warning here on the east coast of Florida.  I do not expect much beyond a lot of rain here but I do have friends and family on the west coast and am crossing my fingers for everyone.   

I plan to do some crafting on this wonderfully rainy day (no winds yet) but before I head in to JulieWorld (yes, my craftroom has a name) I thought I'd share my DT card for today's new topping over at the Seize the Birthday challenge blog.  It's broad scoped in nature so we're hoping for a full gallery.  

Any guesses?

Clean and Simple is the Name of the Game this fortnight.

Toppings are always optional however it must be a birthday card.

I can't get enough of these cute, cute, cute MFT dies!  To keep this card CAS I opted for an off the edge design using an embossed partial circle die cut to ground my celebratory beverage.  All of the images were cut from white cardstock and then blended with Distress Oxide inks.  After adhering the elements I stamped a greeting in the lower right corner, matted the panel in gray and then adhered the finished panel to a light blue card base.  I'm in love.

I invite you to visit our blog for more CAS birthday inspiration and hope to see your card in our gallery! 

As always, thanks so much for spending a bit of your day with me!



  1. What a brilliant CAS card Julie! Love those MFT hands and cocktails and this is such a great way to use them. Glad to hear you are safe and not expecting any damage - my heart goes out to those on the west coast too. Vicky x

  2. That drink looks so good and I sure hope that you didn't get much more than rain. Our house in Naples was good.

  3. Wonderful CAS design and love those detailed diecuts! Cathy x

  4. Great CAS card Jules. I like how you did it off the edge and place it on the embossed circle.

  5. I love the design of this soooo much Jules! Off the edge with great colours and textures. Fabulous! Looks like you, Nancy and I all had the same theme in mind for this challenge!

  6. Ooh, my! I love how that embossed circle panel just lifts this already stunning card!
