There Is No Time Like The Present To Tell You.../Cutting Cafe

Good Morning Everyone...Happy Monday! I hope you had a wonderful weekend! Here's a birthday card I made for my brother in law using The Cutting Cafe's Clock Background Printable Stamp Set and the It's About That Time Set for the clock and sentiment. I had to make this card an odd size in order to make the panels line up properly. For the clock hands I used Spellbinder Timeless Heritage and set the time at 8:17...his birthday August 17th...pretty nifty wouldn't you say? It was my husbands idea so I really have to give him credit---
Here's The Recipe---
Card Size: 5 1/8" x 4 5/8"
Stamp/Image: Cutting Cafe-It's About That Time Printable Stamp Set
Sentiment: Cutting Cafe-It's About That Time Printable Stamp Set
Nestibilities: Circle/Scallop
Spellbinder: Timeless Heritage
Punch: Stampin Up Slit (for the scallops)
Accessories: Ribbon, Brad, Flat Back Pearl, Distress Ink, Foam Pop Dots
Base Cardstock: Core'dination
Patterned Paper: Cutting Cafe-Clock Background Printable Stamp Set (recolored and printed on  American Traditional Designs Textured Cardstock)

That's it for today. Thanks for stopping by...I hope to see you again later in the week. Til then enjoy your day!

Fabulous card, Kelly! Wow, I really love the Cutting Cafe clock background stamp you used as your printed paper for this card...really makes this card look very classy! I really like this 3 panel layout you've used. This is on my list of things to try! And I think it's so cool that your hubby takes enough interest in your card making hobby to offer suggestions...this one with the time on the clock and birthdate is such a neat idea!
