Bold Birthday Card for PPA267

stampin up fabulous four birthday card idea mary fish

Need a quick birthday card?  Scallops (Striped Scallop Thinlits Die) layered over blocks of bright color are a simple solution.  It reminds me of a birthday cake!  What do you think?pals paper arts color challenge ppa267

My bold color palette is from this week’s Pals Paper Arts Color Challenge (PPA267).  See what the rest of the PPA Resident Artists have created with these colors and play along here.


  • Love it!  Attaching the scallop die cut to my colorful blocks of card stock was a snap with the Stampin’ Up! Fine Tip Glue Pen.  Learn more about the glue pen in this Stampin’ Up! Video.

  • Crisp, black and dries quickly on Whisper White card stock.  You’re going to love the Stampin’ Up! Basic Black Archival Stampin’ Pad.  It’s on the list of My Favorite Things from the holiday catalog.  Available in Basic Gray, too!

  3. Great card Mary!! You have reminded me about the scallop die once again. Just wondering if any other of your blog subscribers have been missing you in their inbox? ? You have been MIA the last two days?

  4. What a great card! Love the idea – would be fun to make some in different color combos to suit the person you are giving it to.

    • Cool idea, Kelly. You could change the colors to a person’s favorite. I like the idea of a monochromatic palette of pinks, blues or purples!

  5. This is an awesome card. You can use it for many occasions. Just to even lift someone up. Would you please share what stamp you used on this card Celebrate????
