Zodiac Sign Cancer Birthday Card

Another card bound for the States! Keeping fingers crossed it arrives. This one is for a cousin who's birthday is the end of June.

The Cancer Zodiac digi is from Digital Delights, as is the Zodiac symbol digital paper and sentiment. At one time there was a set with all the digital stamps and sentiments, but I don't see that available anymore. I've made four other cards with these Zodiac digis – a Tauras one, two Pisces, and a Capricorn.

The blue dotted paper is from Claire Fontaine Scrap Dots Pad (retired). The striped paper 'ribbon' strip is one of three Artemio boxes I bought last year at my favorite outlet shop and had yet to use. It's quite practical, the paper is in a box roll and you pull out what you need like tape. The banner no-brand die frame is one I've had for a while and can count on one hand the number of times I've used it. I'm challenging myself to use some of my dies and supplies I rarely (or have never) use(d). That makes two with this card – the die and the paper 'ribbon'. Embellishments are twine and a button.

  7. Adorable! That bold blue with the pop of red is fantastic! Kudos to you for challenging yourself to use unused supplies. I believe I have that exact same die...and have never used it.
