  • The snappy “Happy Birthday” font is from Remembering Your Birthday stamp set–a birthday basic.

  • Get the “edge!”  I added the Stampin’ Trimmer Rotary Addition to my Stampin’ Trimmer and popped in the Small Scallop Rotary Cutting Blade.  The result is the sweet edge on the Basic Black mat.

    Card #3 is my favourite. I love the simplicity of the design of the card itself and the choice of the soft colour. The enhanced font of the Happy Birthday is just enough to added a little “jazz” without being over-bearing. Another great addition to my “idea” file!! Many thanks. Marilyn
