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.

Build A Bear Birthday Boy Card

I made this card a few weeks ago, using what I consider to be “boy” colors and the Build A Bear stamp set Beary Best Friends. The funny thing is, since then, Stampin Up has announced its Color Renovation and all of these colors will remain! The colors I used here are: Pacific Point, Soft Sky, Real Red, So Saffron, and Whisper White.

The card base is Pacific Point, cut to 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ folded in half. I took a wide strip of Whisper White and layered it with Bashful Blue DSP from the Prints Pack. Underneath that, to the right, I added a strip of So Saffron card stock, stamped with “happy birthday” from Eat Cake in Real Red ink. To add more interest, I pierced holes below the sentiment with the Paper Piercer and adhered it to the base with Stampin Dimensionals.

For the bear, I stamped the image onto Whisper White card stock with Basic Gray ink. I colored in the image with Stampin Up Markers and added Brown Flocking Powder to the bear’s body. Then, I punched out the image with a Mega Circle Punch, layered onto a Real Red Giga Scallop Circle punch.

The hat and balloon images are from the accessories set Beary Best Times. I stamped the hat onto a separate sheet of Whisper White, colored it, and cut it out with scissors. The balloon was also stamped on another piece of whisper white, colored with Real Red Marker, and then highlighted with Crystal Effects. I cut out the pieces of the balloon and attached them to the card with SNAIL and Stampin Dimensionals.
