It’s a Birthday Card with Lemon Zest for Cardz 4 Galz

Refreshing Birthday Card featuring #LemonZest, #TuttiFrutti, #Birthday, #SecretsToStamping, #StampinUp


It’s already time for another challenge over at Cardz 4 Galz! It’s a great theme that we have all been anxiously awaiting – Sunny Summer Days! I took a little broader take on this theme because I needed to make a birthday card for my daughter and she LOVES anything citrus-related. I just had to make her birthday card with the Lemon Zest stamp set. Who doesn’t love a cold glass of Lemonade when it’s hot outside?! 😀 But, before I go on, I want to say a sad farewell to Chris, who is leaving our wonderful design team. I hope you will go to her Puppy Kisses and Paper Dreams blog and let her know that she will be missed!

My Secrets to Making This Lemon Zest Project
  • This card is pretty straight forward but my secret to getting my bow just right is using glue dots to keep it where I want, especially the “tails” on the bows.
