Gasp . . . I almost forgot to make a card for my Dad's birthday! Thanks to a few Stampin' Up! circle punches and this bold "Happy Birthday" sentiment from the You're Amazing stamp set, I could get it done in about 10 minutes. See more Stampin' Pretty Quick Card Ideas.
I also got some quick inspiration from this week's Pals Paper Arts Color Challenge. This bold trio of Summer Starfruit, Marina Mist and Real Red is perfect for a birthday card. Check out what the rest of the PPA Design Team has created with these colors and play along!
STAMPIN' PRETTY TIPS:
- There's no science to it! I punched out various circle sizes in the different colors and pushed them around until they said "Mama!"
- The Summer Starfruit circles (except the bottom one) are popped up on Stampin' Dimensionals for a 3-D effect.
- Two Brights Glimmer Brads (Real Red) add a festive charm.
- I love my new Stampin' Up! Firm Foam Ink Pads. See the difference! However, the new Basic Black doesn't dry well on Whisper White card stock. Stampin' Up! is working on a solution. In the meantime, I recommend using Jet Black Stazon on Whisper White.
