Birthday Wishes for FMS265

A truly girly, feminine, sparkly birthday card! I've gotten so into fall and Christmas that I've missed bright colors like Melon Mambo and Bermuda Bay!

This card will be for a special person with a winter birthday! A little bit of bright color on a white background, perfect for winter.

I hope you enjoyed looking! Thank you for your visit--I hope you leave a comment!

Invitation For You

I set out to make a handsome birthday card, but instead I ended up making this wreath card that I will use for an invitation. All of my local Paper Pumpkin customers are going to be invited to have tea at my house in December! I want to thank each of them for joining me in loving our monthly Paper Pumpkin kits!

I used a Very Vanilla card base. I layered on a piece of Soft Suede. I stamped the wreath from the Wondrous Wreath photopolymer stamp set in Soft Suede and then the second layer in VersaMark, heat embossed with Gold embossing powder. Next, I cut out the wreath and a bow using the Wonderful Wreath Framelits Dies and Gold Foil card stock. Stunning!

The last thing I added was a 1-1/4" band across the bottom. I stamped "For You" from the Thoughtful Branches stamp set using VersaMark and Gold embossing powder. 

What do you think? I will also be making birthday cards using the same outline but a different sentiment. I think it's perfect for masculine OR feminine. 

I'd love to read your comments and just to know you are "out there" following along!

Step It Up!

I really like this card and how it turned out for my brother-in-law's birthday next week. Clean and simple, right?

Then I thought, "How can I make this a little dressier and more feminine?

Voila! I added some punched stars over the printed ones, a few sequins and gold cording in one of the corners. My designer series paper from the Warmth and Cheer stack in the holiday catalog is popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals. The card base is Very Vanilla. My Early Espresso sentiment is from Number of Years stamp set. Those tiny stars were cut using the Perfect Pines Framelits.

I hope you enjoyed looking today. Won't you please let me know you were here by leaving a comment?
