Stampin’ Up Special Moments Happy Birthday

Stampin’ Up Special Moments Happy Birthday

Happy Monday Everyone – I have a masculine idea for you today with my Stampin’ Up Special Moments Happy Birthday share.

We have many current products that work well with new products. In today’s card I used current In Good Taste pattern paper with new Sale-a-bration Simply Marbleous pattern paper for this masculine birthday card.

The marble paper is a perfect match for the stone wall paper on this card.  Add a sentiment from a Sale-a-bration 2022 stamp set and you have a masculine Stampin' Up Special Moments Happy Birthday idea.

With the New Year we need to be prepared for the upcoming birthdays in the coming months. Having a stash of birthday cards is a great way to have the cards you need when the event comes around. The 2022 Sale-a-bration choices has a great stamp set with a script birthday greeting. It also has some sentiments that can be used on the inside of your card.

We have a few pattern papers that are good for masculine cards. I got the Simply Marbleous pattern paper free with my preorder. I love showing you how you can use new papers with current papers. The Smoky Slate marble paper pairs perfectly with the stone wall paper in the In Good Taste collection.

I wanted another color that I could use for the Stampin’ Up Special Moments Happy Birthday masculine card so I pulled in some Soft Succulent pattern paper. For the die cut I used the Forever Flourishing dies and did some surgery to cut off some of the branches.

Let’s make it!

  • fold and burnish your card base

  • attach the stone wall pattern paper to the Basic Gray
  • glue the stone wall panel to the card front about 1/2″ from the left side of the card base
  • stamp the sentiment using Soft Succulent ink onto the White strip
  • add the sentiment layer to the Soft Succulent strip
  • glue the Soft Succulent pattern paper to the back of the sentiment panel leaving about 1/2″ below the bottom of the sentiment panel
  • attach the sentiment panel you created above to the card front so it is centered top and bottom and even with the pattern paper on the right hand side
  • die cut the leaf spray from the scrap of Soft Succulent
  • cut the bottom stem on the right hand side of the leaf spray, see photo above
  • add dimensionals to the larger leaves on the leaf spray and add to glue the leaf stem
  • glue the leaf spray to the left side of the sentiment layer, see photo above

I used a stamp from the Forever Fern stamp set to decorate the inside of the card and the envelope.

The Forever Fern stamp set has some great leaf sprays you can use to decorate the inside of your card and envelope.  I used one of those images for the Stampin' Up Special Moments Happy Birthday card.
