I am smiling because today is my daughter Beth's birthday.  Yes, Beth & her brother Chris have birthdays that are 2 days apart.  This time of year was always fun in our home with 2 birthdays so close together.  Beth is energetic, adventursome, thoughtful and so much fun to be around.  My card today reflects that description.


Did you guess that I would be using the Playful Palette Designer Series paper Stack?  It has the perfect color palette for Beth.  With the vibrancy of this paper, I chose to keep the card simple.


Ginger's Snaps: 

  • Very Vanilla Card Base, 4-1/4" x 11" scored at 5-1/2",
  • Basic Black Mat 4-1/8" x 5-3/8",
  • Playful Palette Mat 4" x 5-1/4",
  • Very Vanilla Mat 4" x 2-1/4", stamp  the sentiment from Stylized Birthday with Sweet Sugarplum Ink on the right side of the mat.
  • Cut 2 scribbles from both Basic Black & Sweet Sugarplum C.S. using the Cupcake Cutouts Framelits. Attach these by slightly overlapping them after applying glue with the Fine Tip Glue Pen.
  • Stamp candles from the Sweet Cupcake Stamp Set using Sweet Sugarplum & Emerald Envy Inks.  Cut out with the Cupcake Cutouts Framelits,  Attach a short piece of Whisper White Baker's Twine to the top of both candles.  Attach to the card,
  • Tie a bow with Basic Black Solid Baker's Twine & attach with a Glue Dot to the criss crossed candles.
  • Apply 2016 – 2018 In Color Heart Enamel Shapes.


Happy Birthday Beth!  Hope it is every bit as special as you are to us!
