Belated Birthday Card

I love giving my students and fellow staff at my school a birthday card on their birthday, if they celebrate. It was tough last year when we were remote and I didn’t have addresses for other staff. I was able to send cards to my students but it felt incomplete. This year I was excited to start sending cards but had to wait until I was given the list. August came and went with no list. When I finally received the list on September 1, I had to switch to belated birthday cards. Fortunately, my new favorite set, “In Your Words”, had just the sentiment.

In Your Words # 156619

Because our school colors are red and black, I chose Real Red for the card base (8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″). I then selected the Beautifully Penned Designer Series Paper from the Sale-a-bration brochure and cut a 4″ x 5 1/4″ for a card front. I stamped the sentiment on Basic White cardstock with Real Red ink and cut it out with the Tailor Made Tags. I love stitching around the edge of the tag. I then tied on a piece of Black & White Gingham Ribbon as a little embellishment.

I loved that I was able to give cards to the six staff members that I missed for August. Hopefully I won’t miss any more birthdays this year but if I do, I’m ready.
