Let's start with a more masculine birthday card. After years of forcing rhinestones and bows on everyone I know, I tend to have no concept of gender propriety. So I asked Sean if confetti can be gender neutral. His response was simple and decisive. "Sure. They shoot off confetti at ticker tape parades and the end of major sporting events, don't they?" Such a wise man, that husband of mine. So if veterans and athletes can get down with confetti, so can regular dudes, right?
Next up I have a more feminine design that I created with the new Confetti Toss Patterned Paper Collection. Not a fan of stamping your own confetti? These papers do the heavy lifting for you in four patterns and three color variations! A very special forum friend recently requested that we consider using purple in our future patterned papers. I may not be nearly as fond of purple as Pat, but I always aim to please. I chose to use today's pattern in her honor.
My third and final card of the day pairs the new Cover Plate: Sunflower with Confetti Toss for a fun alternative to coloring or paper piecing.
And there you have it! Thank you so much for joining me today. I can't wait to come back tomorrow to share more of Confetti Toss with you. In the meantime, make sure to pop in and check out all the inspiration that Nichole, Betsy, Dawn, Heather, and Erin have to share with you. See you soon!
