PPA140 Masculine Birthday Card

Stampin up demonstrator blog order online circle punch birthday card ideas masculine catalog
Gasp . . . I almost forgot to make a card for my Dad’s birthday!  Thanks to a few Stampin’ Up! circle punches and this bold “Happy Birthday” sentiment from the You’re Amazing stamp set, I could get it done in about 10 minutes.  See more Stampin’ Pretty Quick Card Ideas.

StarfruitMarinaRealRedI also got some quick inspiration from this week’s Pals Paper Arts Color Challenge.  This bold trio of Summer Starfruit, Marina Mist and Real Red is perfect for a birthday card.  Check out what the rest of the PPA Design Team has created with these colors and play along!

STAMPIN’ PRETTY TIPS:

  • There’s no science to it!  I punched out various circle sizes in the different colors and pushed them around until they said “Mama!”

  • The Summer Starfruit circles (except the bottom one) are popped up on Stampin’ Dimensionals for a 3-D effect.
  • Two Brights Glimmer Brads (Real Red) add a festive charm.
  • I love my new Stampin’ Up! Firm Foam Ink Pads.  See the difference!  However, the new Basic Black doesn’t dry well on Whisper White card stock.  Stampin’ Up! is working on a solution.  In the meantime, I recommend using Jet Black Stazon on Whisper White.
