{To a Classic} Birthday Card for Dads

This is a card I made for my father in law’s birthday. It uses the stamp set To a Classic. The card base is chocolate chip card stock. layered with Very Vanilla and Elegant Soiree DSP in this striped pattern.

I stamped the images in chocolate chip ink on Very Vanilla card stock. The car and the DAD circles were stamped again on Very Vanilla scrap, cut out and adhered to the base image with stampin dimensionals. The car was colored in with Baja Breeze marker and then topped with Crystal Effects.

Around the edges of the stamped layer, I sponged some chocolate chip ink, then matted it onto chocolate chip card stock.

For a fun accent, I stamped the speedometer on Very Vanilla with chocolate chip ink, punched out the circles and matted them on Baja Breeze card stock sponged with chocolate chip ink. Then, I used a Game Spinner arrow for the center of the speedometer, and of course I put it all the way to 100 mph!

Vintage Recipe Card Style Birthday Card

Here is another sample of the In Color Prints Pack (Level 1 Hostess Choice) in Peach Parfait. The large polka dot pattern caught my eye right away, and on the back was this lined pattern, which reminds me of a recipe card. Since I had pie on the mind after ordering Every Little Bit, this is the card I came up with.

The base is Early Espresso. I sponged the DSP with Creamy Caramel ink slightly, just to tone down the bright white. I cut a strip of the large polka dot DSP and layered Crumb Cake underneath. I used the Scallop Edge Punch on the Crumb Cake, and the paper piercer to make holes in each scallop.

I added some vintage crochet ribbon, Victoria Crochet Trim, around the front of the card to give it a “from grandma’s kitchen” feeling.

The stamped image is from Every Little Thing, and the sentiment is from Birthday Bakery. I stamped the pie three times onto Whisper White and once on white scrap. Then, I distressed the Whisper White card stock by using the Cutter Kit Distressing Tool, rubbed Peach Parfait Marker along the edges, and sponged lightly with Creamy Caramel ink to tone it down. Along the top, I used the Spiral Punch.

After coloring in the pie I stamped on scrap with Copics and Stampin Up Markers, I trimmed it out and attached it to the card with a stampin dimensional.

I added some holes on either side of the sentiment with the paper piercer and used a brown Basic Brad to accent. Then, that piece was attached to the base with stampin dimensionals.

In the bottom right corner, I stamped “happy birthday” from Eat Cake (retired) in chocolate chip ink to finish off the card.

Ornate Blossom {Vintage Style}

Well, this is my attempt at vintage anyway! This card almost ended up in the trash, but a last minute attempt at swiping the ink pad over the card stock saved it. The base is Pear Pizzaz, one of the new In Colors, swiped with Pear Pizzaz ink directly from the ink pad. It gives it a little texture and adds to the vintage-y feel.

The main image is from Ornate Blossom, stamped on whisper white card stock with Tangerine Tango ink. I added two large pearls from the Basic Pearls Jewel Accents. Then, I swiped the So Saffron ink pad around the edges of the card stock. Chocolate Chip card stock was used to mat and it was attached with stampin dimensionals.

Across the card front, I attached a piece of Old Olive Striped Grosgrain Ribbon, looping the ends underneath the strip of ribbon and holding it in place with mini glue dots.
