How to Make a Handmade Birthday Card

Here’s how to make a stunning handmade birthday card while playing like you did in kindergarten!  😛 

Vow to make your card with as much fun and enthusiasm as you created masterpieces when you were a little kid.  You didn’t worry about whether it was perfect.  You just enjoyed the wonder of creating something that expressed what’s in your heart!

Start with the Birthday Blooms stamp set.  Stamp the image on Watercolor Paper with Basic Black Archival Ink.  Then have a blast coloring the flowers and leaves with a Blender Pen and Stampin’ Up! Inks.  This card uses Rose Red, Mossy Meadow, and Old Olive, but you get to pick the colors you like best!

Do you love the person you’re making this for?  If so, be sure to let them know with a long row of hearts.  Oh, what fun this stamp set is for celebrating birthdays!  And you haven’t even gotten to the sentiment yet!  Just add it to the inside of the card, and send it off to a favorite friend or family member!

A sprinkling of  cute little dots stamped on your artwork will show off the flowers even more.  Add some shimmer with the Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush.  Find a way to add a bit of doily and a Bow Paper Clip, just because they make you smile!

Do you hate the mess of glitter?  (I do!)  Wink of Stella is the answer!  The very fine glitter is in a water-based solution, and once you brush it on your project, it stays put!  No mess to clean up, and your Birthday Blooms will shimmer and shine!
