Birthdays and More Birthdays!!!

It seems that if I'm not making thank you cards I'm making birthday cards. I would still have to say I send out more thank you cards than I do birthday cards and the Christmas cards still hold the number one spot for most cards!

I had some pieces of decorative paper left over so I thought I'd make the birthday card I needed with it. Figuring out the colors was easy for a change. Not hard to do when the background paper only has two colors in it!!

I used the Stampin' Up! "True Friend" set for the flowers on the vanilla piece and I stuck with the two color theme. From the Sale-A-Bration book I used the "So Many Scallops" set. That's a pretty fun set to play with. Too bad it won't be in the fall catalog.

I used the Groovy Guava ink pad on the scallop stamp and then colored in the words with the Chocolate Chip marker. I added a little Dazzling Diamonds to the flames. The words came from the "It's Your Birthday" set. I punched out the center of the scallop with the 1-3/8" round punch and then punches out the scallop using the 1-1/4" circle punch and then lined up the scallop punch and punched it out. I affixed the scallop over the vanilla piece and affixed that on top of the vanilla top layer.

The measurements for this card are as follows:
1/2 sheet of card stock folded in half
5-3/8" x 4-1/8" Chocolate Chip
5-1/4" x 4" Decorative paper
2-1/8" x 4" Chocolate Chip
2" x 4" Very Vanilla

A very quick and simple card. I wasn't planning on such a simple and easy to make card. Isn't that nice when it works out that way? I made two!! One for display in my workroom and one to use. I do need to make more but I have some other stamps I want to play with!

All products on this card are Stampin' Up! materials. Click here to find more cards and projects that are made entirely of Stampin' Up! materials.

Great card! By the way, if you're still tracking Feedblitz (I commented about an hour ago on that post), I got this new article at 2:30 a.m., written by you yesterday already I think. TFS! Jeanne

Oh, I like this one a lot!

Thank you so much for the measurements...that is the hardest part of the process for me.

I love the sketch challenges at SCS because they help me with this. FYI... this layout qualifies for SC29 :)
