One stamp set, one punch, 2 colors of ink, and 3 colors of card stock. That’s all I used to make today’s card. Talk about easy! The Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set (available in a bundle with the Happy Birthday Thinlits Dies to save 10%) is really versatile. While it’s main focus is on birthdays, you can use it for just about any occasion, or even just because!


Here’s what I made:

  • Whisper White CS cut to 5″ x 1/2″
  • Whisper White CS cut to 5-1/4″ x 4″ for the inside of the card

Cut using the Banner Triple Punch:

  • one end of the three skinny CS strips

Stamped with the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set:

  • leafy stems in Garden Green ink along the bottom of the Whisper White CS layer
  • flowers in Berry Burst ink at the tops of the Garden Green stems
  • sentiment in Garden Green ink onto the 1/2″ strip of Whisper White CS

Assembled the card:
