Time For Confetti Birthday Card

by Joanne James25. February 2020 09:00

Today I'm sharing a card that uses both the CAS(E) This Sketch layout and the theme over at Time Out this week:


I have a combination of old and new for my card today! I've been desperately trying to increase my stash of on-hand birthday cards and use up some of my stash of retired designer series paper so the above challenges gave me the perfect opportunity - take a look:


Here's the low-down on today's card:

So Sentimental - I used the 'This calls for confetti!' stamp from the new 'So Sentimental' stamp set as the starting point for today's card, picking up on the theme over at Time Out and paired this with some retired Picture Perfect Party DSP that has a fun scattered confetti photographic print for a fun birthday party vibe - which just so happened to perfectly fit the CAS(E) This Sketch layout too.

Label Me Fancy - I heat embossed my sentiment into silver onto some Pool Party cardstock and punched it out with the new Label Me Fancy punch, and backed it with one in a contrasting colour that I'd split in half so that you can just see a border. I added a tiny piece of retired ribbon from my scrapbox for a little extra detail (this ribbon is currently available on the Clearance Rack if you would like to stock up on a ribbon bargain!). 

Sending You Thoughts - I used the Sale-A-Bration free stamp set, Sending You Thoughts, for the inside of my card, along with a little sprinkle of stamped confetti to finish off my celebratory card:

I also added the offcut of my DSP to the envelope flap for a little extra envelope decoration. So a super simple card that meant I could run off a few to add to my stash of birthday cards for when the James Juniors need one for a friend in a hurry!

Here is the visual summary of the key products used on today's project for you to pin for easy reference:


You can see all of my 'How To' summaries on my 'How To - Tips and Techniques' Pinterest board in case you've missed any. 

So it's Shrove Tuesday today - hands up who's having pancakes for dinner this evening? I have been badgered all the way to school today to make some this evening - but just to whet your appetite, here are some American-style ones I had for brunch at the weekend - can you spot the 'hidden Mickey' (or Minnie, with the bacon bow!) - fellow Disney fans, this one is for you!


They were delicious! Enjoy your day and I'll be back tomorrow with another project. Until then, happy stampin'!
