Happy Pi Day!


It's my son's favorite holiday...well, OK, his third favorite after his birthday and Christmas. Today is Pi Day. He asked if I would make a card for his math teacher. How could I say no?

First, I stamped the actual number onto cardstock using Lawn Fawn's Quinn's 123s and Aquamarine Archival ink. I then stamped the birds and word bubbles from the Lawn Fawn A Birdie Told Me set. Lawn Fawn just released a coordinating bunch of dies called Lawn Cuts so it took no time at all to assemble my card. I used Harold's ABCs (another Lawn Fawn set) to stamp 'Happy' and 'Day'. As for the Pi symbol, I got lucky. There She Goes Clear Stamps has an adorable set called Cutie Pi. The sentiment actually said You're a cutie Pi but I trimmed off the words. I colored with my Copics and then added some texture to my symbol using the Lawn Fawn Belinda's Borders set. Voila, a Happy Pi Day card. I thinks this calls for pie.

Thanks for visiting.

  2. Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeek!!!!!!!! Yes, I used 18 e's and eight exclamation points because that's how much I love this card!!! I love Pi Day!! I wanted to buy a Pi cookie cutter, bake a pie and use the pi cutter to cut the symbol into the crust.
