Reject Blog Hop: Kid's Happy Birthday

Into every life a little rain must fall, right?

I made 4 cards for Paper Craft's latest call for submission and none of them got accepted so I am happy to contribute my favorite reject to Amber's Reject Blog Hop. Thanks Amber!

I love this card. I was sad when the Paper Craft people didn't love it for the ABC & 123 category. 

I printed a 4 that I liked, trimmed it out with my craft knife and used it as a template for the 4 cutout for the window. I really wanted it to be the focus of the card and looked to find a typeface that was bold enough to stand up on its own. I chose Algerian. Paper I used is from My Mind's Eye Lime Twist line.

My boo-hooing is over. Now on to another day of paper crafting. There are more calls (and a holiday craft fair - yikes!) to get ready for!


  1. Holly, this is great! I also made a card for the same category that didn't get picked up. Hopefully the next time around, right?!

  2. This is so fun! Love the 4 - so impressed that you cut it out! Looks like a die cut!
