Fabulous Birthday Card

This is a simple and pretty birthday card that is fun to stamp and requires few supplies. I believe the color scheme of Basic Grey and Kiwi Kiss is neutral enough that it could pass for a masculine greeting card as well. The pretty Basic Grey Designer Series Paper is from the Urban Garden collection which also includes soothing colors like Baja Breeze and Not Quite Navy-again, very pretty.

This card is a Kiwi Kiss card base with layers of Basic Grey cardstock and Urban Garden Designer Series Paper tied off with an accent of Kiwi Kiss Silk ribbon. For texture & accent, I pierced holes along the bottom edge of the Basic Grey cardstock using the paper piercer from the Stampers' Tool Kit and the Mat Pack. The flower image from the recently retired Fabulous Flowers stamp set is stamped in Kiwi Kiss and the sentiment is from On Your Birthday and stamped in Basic Grey.


Stamp Sets: Fabulous Flowers, On Your Birthday
Cardstock: Kiwi Kiss, Basic Grey, Urban Garden Designer Series Paper
Inks: Kiwi Kiss & Basic Grey Classic Ink
Other: Paper Piercer, Mat Pack, Kiwi Kiss Silk Ribbon

Thank you for stopping by & Happy Stampin'! EdieB

Lovely Bird Valentine

I would like to share another Valentine card with you today. This card is a simpler version of Andrea Walford's pretty Valentine which you can see here. My card doesn't have the bling of Andrea's card, but it does have a simple elegance that I think will make your sweetheart smile.

The bird leaves and stem are die cut from Chocolate Chip Cardstock using the Sizzix Bird w/ Leaves Bigz die and Big Shot die cut & embossing machine. I used the Scallop Edge punch for the Chocolate Chip border an the paper is from the Candy Lane Designer Series pack. The sentiment is from Baroque Motifs.

Stamp Sets: Baroque Motifs
Cardstock: Close to Cocoa, Chocolate Chip, Pink Pirouette, Candy Lane Designer Series Paper
Ink: Chocolate Chip Classic Ink
Other: Sizzix Bird with Leaves Bigz die, Big Shot, Scallop Edge Punch

Thank you for visiting. EdieB
