My card for today is a birthday card I made for a really nice person. Saturday was Brian King’s birthday. He is not only a friend, but the best Upline you could ask for. So I had to make a special card.
I wanted to make a card that was bright and shiny and a little bold. The only problem is that Brian hates, and that is putting it mildly, any kind of glitter. So I went with the beautiful Year of Cheer Specialty Designer Series Paper. This has to be one of my all time favorite of Stampin’ Up!’s DSP. It is shiny but not glittery, and is a heavier weight DSP. It is also only one sided as opposed to the normal two sided DSP.
With the paper being just perfect, I could not decide on what kind of stamp to choose. So I decided to go with the simple banner. The sentiment is from the upcoming 2018 Occasions Catalog and part of a great suite of products titled Picture Perfect Party. The stamp set is Picture Perfect Birthday. The inside sentiment , which is not pictured, is from the same set. It says “Happiest of Birthdays to you”, and is done in a really beautiful font. I love the way SU has added some mixtures of fonts on a single stamp lately. The banner font is different on the “you” which really emphasizes it.
And that is the card! To add a little bling instead of glitter, I added some rhinestones in appropriate places. Even guys can have rhinestones 🙂
Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope you like my card and please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions regarding the products or anything.
