A Quick Birthday Card or Two

Hello friends! 

I am popping in with a post about creating quick cards with embossing folders. In the last few months, Altenew has come up with more embossing folders. Honestly, I can't pick out one that I do NOT like. 

I am here to share the one with the sentiment "Happy Birthday".  I don't know about you.... but this seems to happen once in a while. Sometimes, I get request from family members that they need a masculine birthday card asap... (eye-rolling).

Our Friendship Blooms

Because I consider myself a "card Ninja", I almost never fail to produce/find one within the hour. HOWEVER, if you are faced with the same challenge, this embossing folder will save the day!

Here I have two ways of using it. You may have seen them already, but I am sharing them again to refresh your memory! Altenew-Our Frienship Blooms-Modern Birthday Faux Letterpress Debossing Folder

This one I stamped the flowers on the sides. If you like to keep it simple, simply run the embossing folder through your die cut machine.
