Big Bold Birthday

Okay – here it is! My first card of the year! It’s taken me at least 6 days to make a card – I must be feeling very unwell – withdrawals maybe!! :)

As promised, I am focusing on the Big Bold Birthday stamp set from Stampin’ Up! and have made this card for a special little boy.

Stamps: Big Bold Birthday
Inks: Stampin' Up! Classic Close to Cocoa, Soft Sky & Tempting Turquoise
Papers: Stampin' Up! Whisper White, Certainly Celery, Soft Sky & Tempting Turquoise
Other: Brads, Button & Kindy Glitz (non-SU)
Note: Use Stampin' Up! Glue Dots to stick down the heavier embellishments like beads and buttons for extra sticking power and Stampin' Dimensionals to raise your selected stamped images!

The balloons are stamped with same colour ink as the cardstock (both Tempting Turquoise) to give an illusion of background pictures. This is a great way to add features to your card without using more papers ... unless of course you like to use papers!

Both cupcake pieces have been raised with Stampin’ Dimensionals with the “icing” coated with Kindy Glitz to give sparkle. The Certainly Celery cardstock has been edged with Close to Cocoa ink

Anyway, it was a simple card to make. Which is lucky really as I haven’t “found” my Craft Table yet – it is still covered in Christmas stuff waiting to be put away in the roof for next time!
