Wish Big Birthday Card

Hi gals! I have a card for you today that almost didn't get made. It was one of those where I picked out my materials and sat down to make it but it just wouldn't come together. I finally stamped a new image and it worked. Imagine my dismay when I realized that by the time I had this finished, the stamp set has retired! Well, you are still going to get to see it because I found out that the set I used can still be purchased digitally. So, here ya go...
And the shot from the side...
This card uses one of my all time fav paper combos: the tiny plaid from Pawsitively Prints DSP along with Real Red, Tempting Turquoise, and Pear Pizazz. If you look closely, you can see that the Turquoise portion of the card is a printed paper too. It is from the same DSP collection as the plaid. The whole series is great for basic card backgrounds as well as scrapbook pages.

I stamped the cake and sentiment after coloring the image with markers. This image is part of Bring on the Cake which ended with the recent Occcasions Mini catalog but it is still available in the digital format. For more info on digital stamp images or My Digital Studio, please contact me. I would be glad to tell you how you can tap into this great new way to create.

I added some die cut lettering (Sizzix Billboard Alpha die and my Big Shot) and a few embellishments for a simple but cute, gender neutral birthday card. I love having this type of card on hand for surprise card needs.

That does it for me today. I'll be back tomorrow with a card that I made using the new On the Grow stamp set featured in the Summer Mini catalog. Also, I am expecting a delivery with several new sets and accessories that I can't wait to use here so check back ofetn for brand new cards using new stamps and embellishments for summer. Have a great day!
