Mojo Monday birthday (times two!)

I am always making birthday cards for the folks who work with me. It's really rare for us to meet each other in person, so I like to reach out where I can. 

I was inspired by a recent Mojo Monday sketch. I often don't use design sketches because I can't put colors and patterns together to save my life. In this case, I used a set of DSP and pulled some plain colors out of it. DSP is like color-matching Garanimals!

I got the first card all the way cut out and THEN realized I didn't have a birthday stamp that was the right size. Argh! 

Resourceful me checked My Digital Studio. Sure enough, there was the perfect stamp already in my palette. Print that out in a matching ink onto white cardstock, and voila. Cute card, done.

It was so cute that I made another, slightly simplified, for another friend. The first friend is bouncy and energetic; the second is chic and elegant. I think both cards fit their new owners well :-).

Paper and card:
  • Tangerine Tango 
  • Island Indigo
  • Whisper White
  • Sycamore Street DSP (from last year's Sale-a-bration -- are you so excited for this year? Me too!) 
  • Dimensions of the cut pieces are 3 1/4" x 4 1/2" and 1 1/2 x 5". Where I've layered, the matte is 1/4".
Stamp sets:
  • Not a one! The image here is from Bring on the Cake, the digital edition
  • Island Indigo (printed)
  • Tangerine Tango (marker)
  • Island Indigo ribbon
  • Dimensionals
  • Rhinestones
