Happy Birthday to You!

Happy Friday Stampin’ Friends!

Since many of us are so happy to see Friday come, I thought it only appropriate that we celebrate!  So today’s card share is a cute birthday card.

My color pallet for the card was chosen from the colors in the “Birthday Basics” Designer Series paper.  The colors I highlighted were Island Indigo and Raspberry Ripple (sounds like a wine from the 70’s – lol) .  The Raspberry Ripple is in the 2012 – 14 In-Color Collection.


I wanted to add a little sparkle for our celebration so a chose a strip of “Silver Glimmer Paper”. STAMPIN’ TIP:  The “Snail adhesive” we usually use for our cards does not work on the back of the glimmer paper, so I suggest using “Sticky Strip”.  That is truly a must have in any stampers kit.  It is the only adhesive I use when creating 3-D projects.

The birthday greeting comes from the stamp set: Label Love.  You will however have to color in the words with a marker to eliminate the border on the stamp.

Remember the stampin’ tip I gave you the other day … Color with the side of your markers, and not directly with the tip.  It will save the tips of your markers and they will last a long time.


I couldn’t seem to find my 1-3/8″ Circle punch so I used the Circle Collections frame-lits to add the Raspberry Ripple circle as a “pop” of color.  I was so excited when they introduced the Circle, Ovals and Square Collections of Frame-lits.  I think they are so versatile!  I guess I will just have to show you what I mean… by posting some awesome projects using these items!


Now, if you would like to make this card a bit more masculine, you could swap out the “glimmer paper” for another color – then emboss it with your favorite emboss folder to add some dimension.  Then I would use another circle punch instead of the scallop … I think that would work nicely.
