My son’s birthday was this past Sunday. He is our youngest and has just turned 20! Where did that time go? Masculine cards are always challenging for me but I think this one turn out quite nice. The inspiration for this card came from the Annual Catalog. The colors, Granny Apple Green, Coastal Cabana, Bermuda Bay and Pacific Point, caught my eye as I was flipping though for inspiration.
Putting it all together
Once I pulled the ink pads out I decided to use the same colors in the Brights 6x 6″ Designer Series Paper Assortment. I cut strips of each color and adhered them to a piece of Basic White Cardstock. Then using my mini paper trimmer I trimmed up the strips to fit on my card.
I stamped Happy, from the Biggest Wish Stamp set, in alternating colors of Granny Apple Green, Coastal Cabana and Bermuda Bay on a strip of Basic White Cardstock. Photopolymer stamps make stamping this sentiment multiple times very easy. Once I placed the stip on the cardstock layer where I liked it, I added the Birthday sentiment in Pacific Point. I attached the carstock layer with the DSP strips to a Basic White Cardbase. Then I attached the sentiment strip with Stampin’ Dimensionals to my card and trimmed it down to fit my card.
To finish off my card, I of course had to add some bling. I used Stampin’ Blends to add a bit of color to a few Silver & Clear Epoxy Essentials to add to my card.
