Today’s card was created with the Construction Zone Stamp Set, a “must have” for my husband. He runs the Republic Services landfills in San Diego, so the images are perfect for employee birthday cards. This would also be cute as a birthday card for a Lego lover! Doesn’t the construction man remind you of a Lego’s figure?
I began by stamping the man, balloons, “Birthday Zone” and machinery in Memento Black Ink on Basic White Cardstock. Then, I colored the man and balloons, using four Stampin’ Blends: Real Red, Azure Afternoon, Parakeet Party, and Crumb Cake.
To feature the company colors of red, white, and blue, I used a card base of Blueberry Bushel, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″, topped with Real Red Cardstock, 3 1/2″ X 5″, and Basic White Cardstock, 3 3/8″ X 4 5/8″.
Next, I used Something Fancy Dies for cutting the man holding the balloons and birthday sign. The machinery was fussy cut with Paper Snips, and all were placed on Dimensionals.
The yellow striped sign was stamped in Daffodil Delight Ink on Basic White Cardstock, also fussy cut, and glued in place. I decided to stamp the cones and arrow directly on the cardstock, using Real Red and Pumpkin Pie Inks.
The inside says “Happy Birthday,” plus a sentiment from the Texturas Naturales Stamp Set, “el mundo es mejor porque formas parte de el.” Translated in English,”the world is better because you are part of it.”
