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.
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
