Gracie’s Birthday!!!

Gracie Flower Background,

I just love Pink, Orange and Yellow together and this card is just so fun!!! I’ll admit I typically don’t do birthday cards specifically for each individual person. I usually go to my stash and pick out a card I think they will like but every once in awhile when I’m playing I like to do a special one. I knew that Gracie’s Birthday was coming up so I thought this would be perfect for her. I use to babysit her back when I was younger and now she is all grown up…..yet I haven’t aged a bit. 🙂

For this card, I started with a Melon Mambo card base and then stamped all over a piece of Whisper White measuring 4″ x 5-1/4″. I used the Perpetual Birthday Calendar Stamp Set which has fabulous background images for all year long! I love it! I stamped in Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight and Pumpkin Pie. Then I took another piece of Whisper White and stamped the rectangle image from the Layered Letters Stamp Set in each of the colors as well. I stamped the letters of her name from the same stamp set in Basic Black!! I wish I had a good tip for spacing that was more than Good Luck!!! 🙂 I started on the outside and worked my way in. I find that usually works best for me. So I stamped the far left and far right and then moved in till I had the right amount of blocks. I layered the name onto Pumpkin Pie and added it to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals! I used Daffodil Delight Cotton Ribbon to tie a knot across the top. Then I tied a knot of Pumpkin Pie and Melon Mambo on either side!!! I really love working with Cotton Ribbon. It is so soft and easy to work with!

Do you like to make personalized cards a lot or just make all occasion cards to pick from when you need them?? Let me know in the comments below!

Happy Stampin’
