It’s your birthday!

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

Today I continue with my Quick-n-Easy card series share with the designer paper.  I thought it would be fun to use the same designer paper and stamp set that I used yesterday!  I came up with a fun and colorful kids card for a birthday.

Our designer paper is the “Sweet Taffy” and I picked the stripped and polka dot patterns… that’s a whole lot of fun!  It’s the “Big News” stamp set,and I picked “It’s your birthday!” and yes, it’s suppose to have ink inside the letters 🙂

My base card is Tempting Turquoise… I also matted the greeting with it.   I added the Daffodil Delight behind the designer paper to coordinate with the cotton ribbon and scallop punch behind the candle.  Whisper White was used for the greeting, the candle and the inside of the card.

I pulled out the Circle Collection Framelits to cut out my greeting and the mat.  I was tempted to do some paper piercing on the Turquoise mat some texture, but I said I would give you quick -n- easy! Feel free to step up any card with paper piercing.  It is easy and it adds a nice touch to the card.

I also did some punching, that’s always a quick and easy way to jazz up a card.  Today I used the 1-3/8″ Circle punch and teamed it up with the 1-3/4″ Scallop Circle punch.

Yep … I did it, I broke out the glitter!  It’s been a while but I love the sparkle on the card.  I’m sure I’ll be sparkling for a few days too.  Even the shower doesn’t even get it all off, but it does look pretty going down the drain! LOL

Thanks for stopping by today.  Not sure if I’ll be sharing this combination of  “Sweet Taffy” & “Big News” again tomorrow, but I will have another Quick -n- Easy card for you!

Have a great day ~
