A Shapely Birthday

I’ve needed to make birthday cards for my Stampin’ Family, and the sketch over at Create with Connie & Mary inspired me to make this simple, shapely and cheerful greeting (with a little embossed bling on the birthday)!

Don’t be afraid to take a sketch and turn it on it’s side, like I did with this one:

Card Recipe (all supplies from Stampin’ Up!):

Stamps: Blue Ribbon (wood~131964 or clear~125981)
Ink: Bermuda Bay (131171) and Raspberry Ripple (126859)
Paper:  Calypso Coral, Bermuda Bay, Very Vanilla card stock, Birthday Basics DSP(130145) 
Accessories: Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder (131930), Heat Tool (129053), Big Shot (113439), Oval Accent Bigz Clear die (127055),  Ovals Collection framelits (129381), 2-3/8″ Scallop Circle punch (118874), Occasions Paper Piercing Pack (129387), Paper Piercing Tool (126189) and Stampin’ Pierce Mat (126199).  

As always, you can order supplies HERE and don’t forget that Designer Series Paper (DSP) is Buy 3, Get 1 FREE this month and if you order on my website during July 2013, enter hostess code JF3KWJT7 because someone will be the “Mystery Hostess” and get some fun goodies this month!

I’m going to make a bunch of these cards with the other papers in the same pack and I’ll post a picture on my FB Fan Page, if you want to see samples in varying colors and designs 🙂
