Thrifty Thursday 1-8-09
This is the Birthday card that I made for our Stampin’ Up! Birthday Celebration. I decided to use it for Thrifty Thursday because it is so easy to make and the style allows you to use all the paper in the DSP pack.
I have used the Rainbow Sherbet #112471. Not only does this paper sound yummy, but it is just so cute. This card is very versital and can be used for either a boy or a girl.
The basic card is made with Apricot Appeal. Then I used Gable Green behind the DSP. I used Tempting Turquoise for the scallop and the 1/4″ ribbon then top off the ribbon with Apricot Appeal 1 /4″ grosgrain ribbon.
My Scallop is actually a special embosslit die that said 20 years. It is to celebrate Stampin’ Up! 20 years in business this year. However you could use the scallop circle punch. I covered it with a tag from the deer friends hostess set and punched it out with our 1 3/8 circle punch to create a beautiful layered look. I didn’t want the tag to be stamped in just one color so I use our Stampin’ Markers to color directly onto the Stamp.
I finished the card by stamping happy birthday for the Bitty Birthday set #110994 for $12.95. Because the tag just says a little something you could leave off the Birthday stamp or stamp it with a variety of other stamps for almost any occasion.
So between the versatile saying and being able to use all the designer series paper on just one card lay out I think this card is very thrifty
