I made today’s card with the Big On Birthdays stamp set, which is on page 6 of the Occasions catalog. The Happy Birthday stamp I used has a straight, rigid feeling font, and can certainly be used for a more minimalistic, masculine card. However, the pretty and carefree floral image stamped above and below it, and the coloring in the letters, transform it into something quite feminine. And it’s a really simple card to make!

Make this pretty birthday card made with the Big On Birthdays stamp set from Stampin' Up! #stampcandy

 

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:

  • Old Olive card stock (CS) to 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, and scored it in half at 4-1/4″
  • Whisper White CS to 5-1/4″ x 4″

Stamped with the Big On Birthdays stamp set:

  • sentiment in Basic Black ink onto the Whisper White CS
  • floral image above and below the sentiment in Basic Black ink

Colored in using the Watercolor Pencils (on page 24 of Occasions catalog:)

  • flowers and letters in Melon Mambo
  • leaves in Old Olive
  • I then smoothed out the colors with a Blender Pen.

Assembled the card:

  • glued the Whisper White CS onto the front of the card base
