Celebrate Life. Today

On February 17, 2014 my dad’s soul went home to the God who gave us life. Dad was an artisan. He was a perfectionist in his trade and this year on his second death anniversary while going through a range of emotions, I decided that to honour his life, I will do what I know best. Create.

I created these cute little cards as a reminder to celebrate today. Light those candles. Don’t save that dress. Use those embellishments and foam tape. Tomorrow is never promised.


These cards are so simple and super easy to make. The supplies used for these cards are shown in the image above.

Want to give this a try?

Using Ranger’s Distress Inks, carefully blend the cardstock from dark to light.

Stamp your sentiment towards the bottom of the card. In this card, I stamped the Paper Smooches Celebrate stamp using Docrafts Artiste Black Dye Ink.

Use strips of patterned paper to add a fun twist to the card. You can also use washi tape. Here I have used both patterned paper and washi tape.


Life is precious. Take each day and relish it! Love the people in your life and make every moment count. Celebrate, Today and everyday.

Thank you for visiting. Until then, learn new things and be a kind human.

Yours in papercrafting,

The Girl with a Tape Runner
