One down, two to go!

Last night I held the first of three consecutive birthday card buffets.  My guests had a great time...one of them even brought her fiance so that he could practice stamping in preparation for making their wedding invitations!  He did a fantastic job, making 5 different designs in three hours...talk about a keeper!  Today I have another of the projects that was on offer...

Birthday card featuring the Big News stamp set.
This project was inspired by one I saw on Pinterest by Amy O'Neill.  The background Whisper White layer is embossed using the Arrows TIEF and then mounted on a Real Red card base.    The DSP banner is from the Brights DSP stack...I love that paper, but always forget to use it!  The focal image, from the Big News stamp set, was inked using Old Olive, Real Red and Daffodil Delight markers.  The polaroid frame was die-cut using the Squares framelits and popped up with dimensionals. 


The silver glimmer stars were punched using some retired punches, but the same look could easily be achieved using the Stars framelits.  The little WooHoo Banner was stamped in Old Olive ink and then fussy cut.

 On the inside of the card I stamped the sentiment in Real Red ink and the candle in Old Olive, adding another little silver glimmer star as the flame on the candle.  I love that this is a quick and easy generic birthday card, suitable for just about anyone :)

Have a fantastic weekend...and if you have time, why not play along with our colour challenge over at Sunday Stamps...there's still time!
