Sunny Birthday

February was a busy card-sending month for me with 3 birthdays and 3 anniversaries. This is one of the birthday card designs I did for this month, which I made a few extras of again for Operation Write Home. No point in wasting good time!

Lots of stitching and paper piercing on this one, and more of the chalkboard technique. I added bright strips of DSP to some Core'dinations paper and stitched it down. I like the linen-like texture of the Core'dinations paper. You don't always have to sand it :)
  • Stamps: Best of Birthdays
  • Ink: Illuminate
  • Paper: Whisper White, Core'dinations Primrose Petals, Daffodil Delight, Basic Gray, Floral District DSP
  • Other: Blossom and Extra-Large Oval punches, Occasions Paper Piercing Pack, Paper Piercer and Mat, Signo white gel pen, sewing machine and thread, dimensionals, Embossing Buddy, White embossing powder, Heat Gun
The Best of Birthdays  is part of Stampin' Up!'s 25 year Anniversary celebration. Each month, Stampin' Up! will release a stamp set featuring 4 of the all time best stamps for a specific theme and 1 new, never before seen image with the same theme. So far, we have Birthdays for January, and Love for February. For each set that you purchase, you will get a sticker to be saved on the the Stampin' Up! Collector's Card. After you fill it with 6 stickers, it can be redeemed for any stamp set 14.95 or less. Go check it out!!
