Surprise! I bet you were expecting a Christmas card with that title. Here is the problem. It is still sunny and in the high 70’s so I am having a hard time making Christmas cards right now. Actually I am having a hard time making Halloween and Thanksgiving cards too. I am not complaining. If I had my way it would be sunny and in the 70’s all the time! They say it is like that in Hawaii. I might have to consider moving there.
One of the things I like to do is look at a stamp set (or die set) and see how it can be used in ways you wouldn’t normally use them in. This is the case with the Merry Christmas Thinlits Dies in the 2018 Stampin’ Up!® Holiday Catalog. The dies cut out the words Merry, Christmas, Holidays and Happy. Happy can be used year round!
To make this card I first cut a piece of the In Color 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper in Grapefruit Grove to 3.75 x 5. Then I cut that piece into four pieces and put them back together on a piece of Whisper White cardstock leaving the spaces. I cut ‘Happy” out of Basic Black cardstock and then stamped “birthday” between the pieces. This stamp comes from the set called Itty Bitty Greetings. I masked off the word “happy” with tape. It was a super easy card to make and only took a few minutes.
