Today, our Saturday Blog Hop theme is "Birthday". The Big On Birthdays stamp set from the Occasions Catalog coordinates well with the Any Occasion stamp set from the Sale-A-Bration Catalog. I love how Stampin' Up! coordinated a lot of the products to play well together from both catalogs.

These 3 colors remind me of a tub of sherbert and look so yummy together. Such a simple card to create also and finished off with some Rhinestone Jewels:

Steps to creating this card:

  • Card Base: Crushed Curry Cardstock 5-1/2" x 8-1/2". Score and fold in the center at 4-1/4". 
  • Layer #2: Flirty Flamingo Cardstock 4" x 5-1/4". Glue to card base.
  • Layer #3: Whisper White Cardstock 3-3/4" x 5". Stamp the large sentiment from the Big On Birthdays about an inch from the top using Crushed Curry Ink and add all of the other images from both stamp sets using Crushed Curry and Flirty Flamingo Ink.  Glue to card front.
  • Bling: Add some Rhinestone Jewels to the background!
