Biggest Wish Birthday

Happy Monday!  I hope you had a good weekend and you’re looking forward to a nice, warm (maybe HOT!) summer week ahead. I spent some time playing with a new set that wasn’t initially on my radar when I first looked through the Annual Catalog.  Then I began seeing so many great cards created with the Biggest Wish stamp set…now I had to have it!

The big, bold sentiments along with the smaller, scripty ones will be so useful for many different types of cards.  Today, I created a pretty birthday card that I would say is gender neutral…would you agree?

The card layout is pretty straightforward with a Basic White thick card stock card base and a Crumb Cake panel.

Not Just For Christmas…The pretty botanical background is a pattern from the Tidings of Christmas Designer Series Paper.  This is one of the DSP collections on sale this month at 15% off.  There are several patterns in this collection that go well beyond Christmas.

Fun Foliage…I used a variety of dies from the Forever Flourishing dies to create one of the focal points.

Make a Bold Statement…Like a mentioned above, the Biggest Wishes stamp set makes a big impact and creates another focal point.  I stamped the big birthday sentiment in black ink and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder.  It’s cut using a stitched rectangle and matted on a piece of Crumb Cake card stock.  

The “happy” is stamped in black ink and hand cut.  I also cut a Basic Black mat to make it stand out.

Inside Scoop…the sentiment is from the Best Year stamp set and is stamped in black ink.  A strip of DSP and coordinating card stock gives a the inside panel some interest.

See the Value…I’m really glad I gave this set a second look.  It’s one of the least expensive sets in the catalog and I know I’ll be using it over and over.  If anything, this set will give a more life to a lot of stamps sets I already own.
