Simple Saturday Birthday Card Idea

Learn how to create this simple birthday card using Stampin Up Celebrate You Framelits Dies - Mary Fish Ideas

I used the rectangle die from the Sliding Door Framelits Dies to create the Melon Mambo frame on today’s birthday card.  Such a versatile die set.  Remember the sliding barn door card I created earlier this week here?

STAMPIN’ PRETTY TIPS:

The outside measurement of the Melon Mambo frame is 4 1/4″ x 3 1/4″.  I used the Big Shot Magnetic Platform to keep the rectangle die in place, centered on the Melon Mambo card stock, during it’s journey through the Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine.

Instant WOW!  I used a Stampin’ Up! Sponge Dauber to add Melon Mambo ink to the lower portion of “celebrate” for a subtle ombre effect.

Celebrate and You were die cut with the Celebrate You Thinlits Dies, a Level 2 FREE gift with an order of $100 or more before shipping and tax during Sale-A-Bration.  Learn more about Sale-A-Bration here.

Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals support the frame.  I cut them in half for lifting “celebrate” and “you” to the height of the frame.

I love pretty paper.  How about you?  The black and white patterns of Petal Passion Designer Series Paper (one of My Favorite Things) provide a beautiful contrast to Melon Mambo.  Get a close up look at the new Occasions and Sale-A-Bration paper patterns here.

    • I experimented until I found the right background paper. Some of the designs felt too big (lost in the small space where it shows). This leaf pattern felt “just right!” Thanks, Stella.
