Birthday Card for a Guy


Tonight I opened up my new stamps from Papertrey Ink: "Big Birthday Wishes". These are fun sentiments that go with coordinating number dies. I passed on the dies, since I have plenty of numbers on Cricut cartridges. For this birthday card for my older brother, I cut my numbers at 1 3/4" real size from the Nursery Rhyme cartridge.

Recipe:
(all materials Papertrey Ink)

8 1/2" x 5 1/2" Ripe Avocado Cardstock, scored at 4 1/4"
4" x 5 1/4" Dark Chocolate Cardstock
3 3/4" x 5" Turning A New Leaf Patterned Paper (numbers also cut from a pattern from this pack)
Mat Stack 1 Die
Woodgrain Impression Plate
"Big Birthday Wishes" Stamp Set
Versamark Ink
White Filigree Embossing Powder
Vintage Button & Rustic Cream Button Twine
Chai Ink

Lovin this! A while back I was looking for a birthday card for a friend's son. I had zero luck finding what I was looking for. I told a group of friends about this problem one night while we were having a few drinks. We proceeded to get smashed and make up a bunch of greeting cards we found funny. I had been writing down the cards we made up and the next morning I read them. Much to my surprise the cards were still funny even when sober.
