Half Full Color Block Birthday Card

Stampin Up Half Full Wine Birthday Card Ideas - Mary Fish StampinUp

When it comes to creating a quick card that packs plenty of WOW!, color blocking, as in today’s birthday card, can be the “magic.” The stamp images from Half Full stamp set (Stampin’ Up! 2017 Holiday Catalog) are perfect for fitting into various sizes of rectangle blocks and the color combinations are endless.

  • Half Full stamp set fills the need for a fresh and fabulous birthday card for my wine-loving friends.   It made the list of My Favorite Things in the holiday catalog!
  • The Black Rhinestone Jewels (also on the list of My Favorite Things) add a pop of sparkle and personality, while keeping things minimal and modern.
