Today I’m sharing the third in a series of birthday cards designed by Monika Davis that I copied for my team meeting Make & Takes. Click to see the first and second in the series.

The card base is Melon Mambo card stock.

The sentiment from the Party With Cake stamp set is stamped in Basic Black directly onto the Whisper White card front, then colored in with Crushed Curry and Melon Mambo Stampin’ Write Markers. Do you see my mistake? I started to color the T in To with Melon Mambo, then realized it should be Crushed Curry. Hey, what can I say? It’s handmade. I actually kind of like it. I might even go back and color the tops of all the Crushed Curry letters in Melon Mambo to match it.

The three banners are 1″ strips cut from the It’s My Party Designer Series Paper Stack, then notched with the Banner Triple Punch. We glued them to the Whisper White layer.

We threaded Melon Mambo/Basic Black Baker’s Twine through a Basic Black button – the largest size button in the Neutrals Designer Buttons – then attached it with Glue Dots.

Another brilliant and easy design. Thanks, Monika!
