A Birthday Card with a Sneak Peek :)

By | August 25, 2015

I love the design for the Pals Paper Arts Sketch Challenge! Such a fun design to work with.

For PPA 264, I created a birthday card for my brother-in-law using a new stamp set (yay a sneak peek) from the Holiday Catalog that begins on Sept 1st.  One of the perks of being a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator is we get to play with the new items early!! 

I stamped the antlers, from Wonderland, in Crumb Cake onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock.  Then, I cut the piece into strips.  I trimmed the 2 on the ends so they would be shorter.  I matted the strips with Cajun Craze cardstock and adhered them down to the Crumb Cake card.

The sentiment is from the Tin of Cards stamp set.  There is a fun kit that coordinates with the stamp set, but it is not necessary in order to get the stamp set.  I used the Tags & Labels Framelits with my Big shot to create the layered look with Happy Birthday.  I adhered this to the front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

To finish it off, I layered the inside and then stamped another antler in the corner.

What a simple and easy birthday card for my brother-in-law, an avid hunter.

      Thanks!! I was unsure about this stamp at first, but I have used it the most from the Wonderland stamp set so far. I am looking forward to using it more and the rest of the stamp set.

    What a great masculine birthday card using a winter stamp set! I love how you stamped your panels with the antlers. Thanks so much for joining us at the PPA this week!
