Birthday Cards

Happy And Joyful Birthday Wishes | Simon Says Stamp

Hello, I hope you’re having a nice day!

The new Simon Says Stamp Happy And Joyful release is live and one of my favorite items from the release is the bold XL Stacked Greetings stamp set (also available with a coordinating die).

For this clean and simple and bold card, I started by creating a 4.25″ x 5.5″ background using light green inks and a mask made with two-inch Post-It tape (any kind of masking paper will do). I began by cutting a roughly 5″ piece of tape and then I tore it into two pieces along its length. I then used one piece to mask off a jagged line about 2/3 up the panel and covered everything above the masked line with scrap paper to protect it. Using a blending tool, I blended a very light layer of Celery ink over the exposed bottom area of the panel.

Next, I removed the mask and used the other half of Post-It tape to mask off another jagged line, this one an inch or so below the previous mask. I again used scrap paper to protect the top of the card and then blended another layer of Celery over the bottom exposed area of the card. I repeated this twice more, with a light layer of Limelicious, and then a heavier layer of Limelicious.

With the background done, I simply stamped the sentiment in Versafine Clair Nocturne ink and then glued the card front to a card base.

This quick and easy card would be so easy to mass produce, and think of all the colors you could use!

Thanks so much for visiting!
