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!
