Quick & Easy Birthday

swirlybirthdaycloseup

Today is my husband's 39th birthday and I was also challenged to create a Quick & Easy card for the Stylin' Stampin' INKSpiration blog.  Therefore, it was a perfect opportunity to kill 2 birds with one stone.  And speaking of birds, guess which stamp set I used today?  That's right!  It's another Swirly Bird card.

 The base of the card is Crumb Cake card stock measuring 4-1/4" x 11", scored at 5-1/2".  The top Very Vanilla card stock layer measures 4" x 5-1/4".  You can cut the paper for this card in less than a minute!  The stamping is almost as quick.

I stamped the "happy birthday" from Watercolor Words in Early Espresso near the middle of the Very Vanilla card stock.  I filled in the bottom with stamped-off Crumb Cake swirls, Dapper Denim swirls at full strength, and some Early Espresso splatters in various strengths. 

Now, I was technically done with the card, but I had ink on my fingers and smudged the top corner.  Just remember, a mistake is an opportunity for embellishment.  Therefore, I added a strip of Dapper Denim 3/8" Ruched Ribbon to hide my boo-boo.

I can't wait to try this same card with a different color combo!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

    I really like this card Melissa. It may be a quick one but it packs a punch. Glad to see other people do the “boo boo” thing. Everytime I use the Dapper Denim I seem to get a spot on something. Super juicy pad I guess. Thanks for sharing.
