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!
Finally I lifted the mask and stamped ‘Happy Birthday’ from the Wacky Wishes stamp set in Island Indigo. Then I wrapped Island Indigo Bakers Twine around the card three times and tied it in a knot. I really wanted to tie it in a bow but decided the knot would be more masculine.
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.
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?
