Frosted Birthday

There comes a point in every scrapbookers life when you realize that you are hoarding some sort of paper.  I am really good at using my paper packs in an almost timely fashion but there is one category of paper that I have a rather large stash of:

Christmas Paper Packs

Don't laugh!

The CTMH Christmas packs are alway so pretty that I almost can not cut them.  Or I love them so much that I cut them but buy multipacks of the same paper so I will not run out.  I have been trying to use up some of my Christmas paper making Christmas cards to add to my card racks and sell at the Craft Fairs that I love to work but there is this one .... paper....FROSTED.... 

Don't ask how much I bought just know that I need to use it.  So I was searching my How To Books and found a pattern in the Make It From Your Heart Vol 2.

This is Pattern 28 on page 46.  The only changes I make was the pearls.  This is Christmas paper, but would you ever guess?

Here is the supply list of what I used:

4¼" x 5½" Happy Birthday Card Make It from Your Heart® Vol. 2 

D1536 My Acrylix® Perfect Fit—Frames 2 
D1560 My Acrylix® Holiday Tags 
X7175B Frosted Paper Packet 
1388 Colonial White Cardstock
 X5930 Slate Cardstock 
1275 Outdoor Denim Cardstock 
Z2173 Slate Exclusive Inks® Pad 
Z2130 Indian Corn Blue Exclusive Inks® Pad
 Z2140 Outdoor Denim Exclusive Inks® Pad 
Z1799 Silver Shimmer Trim 
Z1806 Green & Blue Epoxy Bubbles (I used Pearls)
Z1311 1¼" Circle Punch -on the while supplies last list
Z1790 Cricut® Artiste Collection Cricut® Shape: 
Artiste 2" Shift+3D Object (p. 80)

There is a lot of retired product in this list so you will not be able to copy it exactly but you could look at the list, check your stash and come up with a different look with the same pattern. 

Since I am working on re-stocking my card racks for my craft fair in Carrollton next Saturday I made a set of 16 cards with this pattern. 

 What a great way to use up some of my paper stash.

But sometimes...when I open my monthly CTMH box,
I think I see this over my shoulder.

Have a great weekend.
