The stamp sets I used in my very bright and fun Birthday card are "Birthday Balloon" and "Basic Borders 2".
And here is how I did the card:
First I cut a square panel from white cardstock approx 1/2" smaller than the cardfront.
Then I stamped the checkerboard border in pink Neon inks around the panel to create a frame.
I stamped the dog balloon and "awesome" sentiment with Memento red inks onto a piece of scrap cardstock and cut the banner word as well as the balloon out, trimming closely.
I stamped the "awesome" sentiment again, this time directly onto the card front with Versafine black ink and mounted the balloon and "awesome" banner word with dimensional foam tape onto the card front.
Et voila... there you have a bright and fun Birthday card ;-)
Finally, we would like to let you know that our friends over at StampNation are celebrating their 4th birthday this week and Whimsy Stamps is one of their sponsors!
