Big Birthday
Topic: Stamping

I needed a person-specific birthday card this week and decided to do some stamping. I started with two birthday stamps, left off the greeting on the upper one and stamped them one above the other on bright yellow cardstock. There was not much room for coloring on these but I added some bright markers to the candles and flames. I also decorated the lettering with some black dots.

This panel got bordered in black. Then I found two pieces of graphic black and white cardstock. The chevron got cut into 1/2 inch strips to use as a frame. The diagonal wide stripe got colored with a variety of bright markers.

I mounted the graphic panels onto a yellow card base and the text panel is popped up on foam tape.

I seldom decorate the inside of cards but decided to do it on this one. I cut a couple more strips of the graphic cardstocks and mounted them down the left side. Then I drew a black border to contain the elements and echo the look of a frame from the front.

The age was stamped with my 'hacked' number set and a greeting got hand-lettered. When the sentiment mentioned 'banner' I knew I needed to include one in the card. I hand-drew and decorated the banner and colored it and the numbers with bright markers.


I added some black dots around the numbers to echo the dots on the front panel text.
