March: The Birthday Month and Best of Birthdays

039Does everyone have a birthday in March?  Sheesh!  My baby boy turns 21 in a few weeks, my niece just had her birthday a few days ago, my brother-in-law has a birthday tomorrow, more nieces and nephews later in the month, my son’s girlfriend’s birthday is on the 17th and my DIL has a birthday on the 26th!  That’s just family!  My team had a meeting on Sunday for our Stamp Camp coming up on Saturday and 4 out of the 6 of us have birthdays this month!  Wow!

Thinking about that made me decided that I needed to post a birthday card today!  This one is pretty easy to make….in fact we’ll be making it at class next week.  My favorite part of the card is the designer paper.  The Naturals Composition Specialty Designer Paper is really cool.  The darker notes on the piece on my card are shiny and embossed.  All of the different patterns are like that.  You can do some fun things with this paper….maybe I’ll have to show you sometime!  🙂

I made the birthday label from the Best of Birthdays stamp set two tone by stamping it twice in different colors and then cutting out the birthday banner from one and adhering it to the other.   This little birthday stamp fits perfectly in the XL Oval Punch.  I added an oval background to it by die cutting an oval with my Oval Framelit and paper piercing around it with the Occasions Paper Piercing Pack.  Fun and easy!  Maybe you should give this card a try for all those birthdays in your life!

Have a great day!  Take care and Happy Stamping!
