Happy Birthday- Big Day Card


Today’s inspiration was made for the Blooms & Butterflies Challenge BB-5. The colors used are:  Chocolate Chip, Soft Sky and Wild Wasabi.

I made this card for my Dad’s Birthday.

Happy Big Day

I used the Bakers Twine and tied a bow in the button. I used the white bakers twine and colored it with the Wild Wasabi ink pad super easy.

Happy Big Day 2

Tip: When stamping on a embossed image- stamp first then emboss.

Card size: 5 1/2″ x 4 1/2″ : Layers are 1/4″ smaller: Other parts: Punched out & I used the Chalk Talk Framelits (you could cut out with scissors if you don’t have).

The round black roll at the bottom of the sentiment is a place to slip in some money. It looks like a little diploma when you have it in there.

You could change the colors around for your school colors. Or even if you didn’t have the stars stamp set wouldn’t it be cute with mini “caps” poking out. I really like cards that move or pop out don’t you? I think it adds to the fun!
