A friend celebrated a special birthday recently:
- Stamps: Amazing Birthday
- Color Palette: Old Olive, Tangerine Tango, Whisper White, Daffodil Delight
- Accessories: Park Lane DSP, Mellow Moss ribbon, Stampin’ Trimmer, Stampin’ Dimensionals
The technique is a very simple one, but there are nearly endless options. I cut rectangles of DSP at 4″ x 1 1/2″ and then used my paper trimmer to cut them diagonally from corner to corner, creating a series of triangles. At that point, it’s just a matter of assembling them in a pleasing pattern.
I kept the sentiment and embellishment simple, as this is a Manly Card. The stamp from Amazing Birthday was inked in 3 colors and then cut into pieces with paper snips to create texture and color for the sentiment.
Just a couple of days until the new catalog goes live! June 2nd is the first day to order, and it’s going to be a busy day. Order early in the day – the system is supposed to open at 2am Mountain time, which is 10pm on June 1st Hawaii time. You can place your order HERE.
One thought on “Happy Happy Birthday”
Very nice care, Anne. Sometimes I forget the simple, easy ideas for creating a lovely background. Thanks for bringing this to the front of my brain! How lucky for you to be able to order at 10:00 on Mon night from the new catalog. I think it is packed with lots of goodies. I am loving all the ideas on Pinterest.
