Every bit of you

Hand-stamped birthday card using Stampin' Up! Amazing Birthday

Here's a clean and simple birthday card I made for my friend Laura. I designed the whole card around the tag, which says "So thankful for every bit of you." Absolutely true!

I also used the new Blendabilities markers here -- I love to color, and am having fun teaching myself how to use these. I only have one color family, though, so I'm creating Pumpkin Pie orchids as a new variety :-).

If I were to make this card over, I'd add a thin mat of Pumpkin just to pull that color in a third time. My friend Deena taught me to use each color three times on a card (the second dash of Pumpkin is in the circle on the tag).

If you're reading this, know that I'm so thankful for every bit of you! What are you thankful for today?

Ingredients

Paper

  • Old Olive base 
  • Natural Ivory at 5 1/4" x 4" plus scrap for the die cut

Stamp sets

  • Amazing Birthday (the tag)

  • Stampin' Write marker in Old Olive

Baker's secret:
If you love a retired stamp set, look for it as a download for My Digital Studio -- you can print on cardstock and just use one element -- then stamp/color as normal.
