Sweet Ice Cream, Expressions in Ink, Birthday Card, 2021-2022 Stampin' Up! Catalog

Well, it doesn't get any simpler than this!  I had run across a card I made a long time ago and thought I'd see if I had a "happy birthday" that was long enough to do that space justice.  And sure enough I did. It came from the "Sweet Ice Cream" set, so off I went.

I wanted some pretty paper and the Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the "Expressions in Ink" package was just what I was looing for. 

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Basic White card stock. This card opens on the right and the fold is on the left.

I cut a piece of Polished Pink card stock 3-7/8" x 3-7/8" and I cut the DSP at 3-5/8" x 3-5/8".  Then I took each piece and separately cut them on the diagonal. I matched the tips to the cutting line on my paper cutter. I taped the DSP to the card stock on both halves.  I set them on top of my folded card so I could line up where the words would go. I did set this up in my Stamparatus because I didn't want to get it wrong and I wanted to make sure I got it inked up enough.  I was glad I did because my ink pad was just a little bit dry and did not stamp as dark as I had wanted it. So since it was in the Stamparatus, I just added more ink to the words and stamped them again.  It was now bold enough!

Once the words were stamped I taped the triangles in place on the upper left and bottom right corners and the card was done.  I told you it was simple but I forgot to say how quick it was too!  And pretty???  I think so.

Thank you SO very much for taking your time to stop in and see this quick and easy birthday card,
