Another card to make on a budget

Yesterday I shared about making "investment" cards. Today I have another card to share that uses products that will take you far into a stamping future.

This card is made using the Best of Birthdays stamp set. You get a whole variety of stamps that are fun and versatile. The design comes from a swap card I received at the Stampin' Up! Convention this summer made by Melissa Roberts.

The colors are from the new 2013-2015 In-Color Collection which you can get as a Cardstock & Pad Kit that includes all five new colors of card stock and five ink pads for $29.95. I buy this bundle every year. I'm always confident that Stampin' Up! will feature these colors throughout the year and so having the set becomes a really great investment.

I also used the In Color Designer Series Paper Stack which comes in a pack of 40 sheets for $21.95. These stacks are good investments too because the designs are so versatile and cute.  Just look at the cute polka dots on this card in gorgeous Coastal Cabana.

I'll be sharing another investment card tomorrow using Papillon Potpourri. Thanks for stopping by.
