Words of Cheer for a Special Birthday!

For World Card Making Day on Saturday, October 2, I had a very special task — to create a card for my sweet husband’s birthday on October 3!

I got my inspiration from Julie Gilson at Stamping Gala, who writes about using the Words of Cheer bundle for something OTHER than The Christmas holidays. Such a great way to extend the use of a stamp set! So I was on a mission to make my husband a card using this bundle. Here’s her initial post: https://stampingala.com/2021/10/words-of-cheer-birthday-card.html.

My card starts with a card base of Mossy Meadow. I also cut out these panels:

  • Basic White: 4 1/4″ x 3 1/2″
  • Mango Melody: 4 7/8″ x 3 5/8″
  • Beauty of the Earth DSP: 3 5/8″ X 4 7/8″
  • Misty Moonlight: 1 7/8″ x 3 7/8″
  • Basic White Stitched Rectangle

I cut out the two parts to the Words of Cheer dies — the pine ‘base’ in mossy meadow, and the happy in a layer of Beauty of the Earth DSP backed by the Foam Adhesive sheet. This gave the letters the ‘pop’ that I was looking for! I LOVE this new bundle! The dies allow you to make a two-layer letter greeting!

I used the Time-Worn Type 3D Embossing Folcer for the white panel. LOVE LOVE this look. I ran the stitched rectangle panel through the Woodland Embossing folder. I then started at the card base and added all the layers. I cut out some leaves from the Stitched Leaves Dies in some rich colors. LOVE the stitching! I stamped the Happy Birthday stamp from the Artistically Inked Stamp Set, and then cut the sentiment apart to keep the BIRTHDAY! From there, it was a simple job to start layering!

We had a great birthday celebration for my husband! I hope you enjoy my card, and thanks to Julie Gilson for the inspiration! It was just what I was looking for! All the products you need to create this card can be found below!
