Wacky Wishes Birthday

A Wacky Wishes Happy Birthday

Wacky Wishes Birthday Yesterday we celebrated our son Dallin’s birthday.  I created this one-layer, clean & simple collage card with Stampin’ Up! stamps from Circle Circus  and Wacky Wishes to wish him a happy, happy birthday!  We celebrated at P F Chang’s, his birthday dinner choice.  (Pictures will be added to facebook later today.)

So how did I create this one-layer card?  First I tore a piece of paper to act as a mask.  I placed the torn mask to cover the bottom third of the card and sponged the top third with Baja Breeze ink.  Then, leaving the mask in place, I stamped various circles from in Baja Breeze, Lucky Limeade, More Mustard, and Island Indigo.  The creative color palette came from the Color Coach!

THE WACKY WISHES STAMP SET IS A STAMPIN’ REWARD SET. What does that mean?  When you host a party you can receive hostess benefits including exclusive hostess sets that are specially priced.  BUT you don’t have to host a conventional party to receive these rewards.  Any time your order reaches $150 or more in product you can select at least $25 worth of FREE product including exclusive hostess sets.  Click here to view Stampin’ Rewards.

Wacky Wishes Birthday with envelope

I like to make the envelope extra special so the recipient can anticipate what’s inside.  By slipping a piece of scrap paper under the flap I was able to stamp this circle in Lucky Limeade to imitate the design on the card.  I find that stamping on the flap is always an easy envelope solution.

Being a 21-year-old young man, he ripped into the envelope like TNT and all the pretty decorating was demolished, but it’s the thought that counts, right?

    Julie–Wanted to thank you for the neat watercolor winter card (Week 5 of Christmas). I just got that set and this idea is terrific! My other half is having hip replacement right after Thanksgiving, so I’m trying to get all my fall/winter cards done NOW. This circus circus card could make a nice Thank you card–I know I’ll need a few of those. Thanks again!
