September cards

There are a lot of birthday cards for me to create for the month of September. This style card is a 'criss-cross' pocket design developed by Michelle Wooderson (her blog here); Mish's tutorial on Splitcoastampers ("SCS") is here (done by Beate Johns), done vertical - 'Cami style' (Cambria Turnbow directions here). I did six of these cards in a snap. Cut all cardstock, stamped everything at once, punched it all out - took about 1/2 hour I'd say to do all 6. If your birthday is in September, Happy Birthday!!!! Try adding a strip of leftover cardstock to the inside of your cards, or to the insert as shown here. Anything to keep the scrap pile from overflowing.... I had never created a criss-cross pocket card until I saw it on SCS and then on Mish's blog. They are indeed fun and habit forming! Hope you make one too!! Doodlebug Birthday stamps; Basic Grey Oh Baby Girl! patterned paper; Stampin' Up tag punch, celery & lilac cardstock, dye ink pads and markers; Palette pad in Noir Black; 1-3/4", 3/4" and 1/2" circle punches; 1-1/4" scallop punch; teeny tiny metal rimmed tags from a LSS in Wisconsin; CopicSpica glitter pens from Ellen's store.
