Happy birthday card using Christmas in the Making

Happy birthday card using Christmas in the Making

I was inspired to make this Happy birthday card using Christmas in the Making stamp set from my friend Libby!  In case you couldn’t tell I love cats!  They just make me happy!  So thinking outside the box with this stamp set makes it useful year round!  I have even seen some super cute Halloween cards using this set!

I also love to color and so I was incredibly excited when Stampin’ Up! brought back their line of Stampin’ Blends Alcohol ink markers complete with skin tones, and color lifter!  This was so easy to do it qualified as a quick and easy card!  

I started with an A2 card base in the Thick White cardstock.  Cut this at 8.5″ x 5.5″.  Score and fold in half at 4.25″.  The Crumb Cake layer is cut at 5.25″ x 4″, the DSP layer is cut at 4 7/8″ x 3 5/8″, and the Shimmer White layer is  4 3/4″ x 3.5″ .  You don’t have to use Shimmery white card stock with Alcohol markers, but I do love the look and blending smoothness!  Stamp the Sentiments in Pool Party ink and remember to make your envelope pretty!
