The Sentiment Says It All!

I received the BIRTHDAY-themed stamp set from Stampin’ Up! that I’ve been waiting for, called HAPPIEST OF BIRTHDAYS, so I made a couple of simple cards to show how one big beautiful sentiment can absolutely MAKE a card!  This simple design is so fun, and can be replicated using any of your favorite Designer Series Papers, and any ribbon.  Here are my cards:

So fun and bright, and yes, easy!  This stamp set will be a staple when it comes to sending birthday cards, which I’ve been trying to do more these days…after all, who doesn’t like getting a handmade birthday hug in the mail?  Here are the sentiments — can you see how you can put them with any paper, any dies, and create a card in no time?

I used the Artistry Blooms Designer Series Papers on both cards, and then cut out a scalloped rectangle on which to stamp my big beautiful sentiment.
