Happy Birthday, Cornelia

You all know her, and you all admire her creativity and style - yes, today is Cornelia's birthday!

Stamps: create a smile (letters, sentiment)
Other: Hero Arts (stencil), Recollection (enamel dots)

Since she is German (even from the same state!) I wanted to use a German sentiment on her card. All stamps are by create-a-smile which is a German company (that also carries English sentiments). The "Alles Gute" is made with this cool Crystal alphabet set that is really easy to line up. I silver embossed and colored the letters with Spectrum Noir markers. I also added Wink of Stella which is impossible to capture on camera. (I tried close ups but they didn't come out!)
I sponged part of a stencil with white pigment ink, white embossed the sentiment and added some enamel dots.

Liebe Cornelia, hoffentlich hat die Post geschafft, dir die Karte pünktlich zu bringen! Mach dir einen schönen Tag!

Be well,


  1. Ein Kärtchen in der Muttersprache, na das ist doch was ganz Besonderes!! Den Schriftzug hast Du total schön gearbeitet, sieht man erst richtig, wenn man sich die Karte mal groß klickt.
    LG Gundi
    PS: Ich habe meine Karte auch in deutsch verfasst ..*kicher*

  2. Perfect card for Cornelia. Love that rich, rich teal with those fabulous German sentiments. This is super sweet, and I just know she'll love it! Bev

  3. What a wonderful sentiment and I can imagine the sparkle! Love the white stenciling and that gorgeous blue background! Thanks, Susanne, for sharing this with us at CAS Mix Up!

  4. Fabulous and artsy ... just like Cornelia! She will love this Susanne. Thanks so much for sharing with us at CAS Mix Up! xx

  5. Sehr schön! I love the card design and the wonderful pop of color, and especially the German stamps! I was raised in Ulmen (Deustchland) and miss it very much, and now we are in sunny Miami, Florida - nice to meet you in blog land! Tschüss! :)

  6. Oh-was für eine schöne Karte und auf einem amerikanischen Blog deutsche Stempel zu entdecken, ist doch mal etwas wirklich schönes. Das verbindet dann noch ein bißchen mehr ;))

  8. Great BD card for Cornelia! I love your stenciling & the beautiful letters, Susanne! My hubby spent 2 years in Germany--long before I knew him--but funny how it makes me feel another connection to you!
