Celebrate Your Day

Every time I purchase a birthday from the store I think “I should be making this card.”   In order to be able to make more birthday cards I’ve been searching for some happy birthday stamps.  I found some recently and decided to try them out.

It’s Pam’s birthday this week so her a personal birthday card with this new stamp set.    Happy Birthday Pammy!!

It was so simple to make! Only took a few minutes. I used leftover scrap paper from my scrap bag (thanks Michelle!). After making Pam’s card, I still had a lot of paper left so I made seven more “Celebrate It’s Your Day” cards. Now I’ll have some cards on hand for the many upcoming birthdays.

I used this Allison Davis sketch for the card (Card Sketch #8) found at Sketch Support.Card Sketch #8

Variations:

  • decided to leave off the strip of paper since I was trying to keep it super simple.
  • used stamp for message & cut into circle shape
  • mounted message on top of circle scallop
  • rounded the bottom corners of the card since the cardstock was round

Supplies:   Pattern paper- Abbey Road by My Minds Eye, corner punch- We R Memory Keepers Crop-A-Dile, Flowers-Bazzil, Buttons & Brads-Misc, Stamps-JIllibean Birthday acrylic stamps, Circle Scallop Punch- 2.25 EK Success

Another variation-I think the version with the 3 patterned cardstock shapes looks better than alternating with solid/pattern (like below).
