Better Together Birthday

Well, I thought I’d take a break from Christmas cards and make a birthday card for you today.

I have a TON of birthdays in December and need to start stocking up now.

I actually made two versions of my card because, why not.  Same layout, different colors.

Both cards use Thick Whisper White cardstock as their base.  My first card uses Delightful Dijon and then uses a pattern from the Petals & Paisleys DSP cut off as a banner over it.


I took some Mint Macaron ribbon and sort of twisted it behind my sentiment.  I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Better Together stamp set in Rich Razzleberry and cut it out with the NEW Stitched Framelits (LOVE).  I matted it on a scalloped square from the Layering Squares Framelits and added a bit of a Delicate Doily behind it.

Lastly, I stamped two party hats, one in Rich Razzleberry and one in Mint Macaron (fussy cut) to the corner of my card.


This card was inspired by the challenges over at Fab Friday and Viva La Verve.

My second card uses the same layout, but in a different color combination.  For the solid cardstock I used Smoky Slate and layered it with a pattern from the A Little Foxy DSP.


This time I stamped the sentiment in Pool Party and used some Pool Party ribbon behind it.  The party hats this time are stamped in Archival Gray and Smoky Slate.

  1. What fun cards – I love your ribbon treatment – totally have to try that! I reminds me of some of our stamped banner option, but in “real life,” lol. Thanks so much for playing at Fab Friday!
