May we all have “epic” celebrations! Young people have a way of expanding vocabulary by adding informal meaning to words, keeping our speech lively and fun. Amazingly enough, Stampin’ Up keeps up with the trends, and added the Epic Celebrations stamp set to our Sale-A-Bration selection. I wanted to design a birthday card using a sentiment in the set, “Here’s to an EPIC Celebration.”

Hey, Here’s to an EPIC Celebration

I thought the greeting, “HEY” would be a good match for the sentiment. I used the Large Letter dies for cutting the H-E-Y from a sheet of Birthday Memories Designer Series Paper. I was careful to place the dies so they lined up evenly on the stripes. I really like the way the bright stripes show off against the Whisper White card base.

I embossed the Whisper White card base with the Hexagons embossing folder, adding to the contemporary feel. 

Prior to embossing the card base, I stamped the “burst” from the Amazing You stamp set in Lemon Lime Twist ink. I used the same ink to stamp “Here’s to an EPIC Celebration,” and a Stitched Shape Circle die for cutting. I popped the circle up on dimensionals, and the front of my card was complete.

I like how the reverse side of the embossing folder decorates the inside of the card. “Happy Birthday” is from the Birthday Wit stamp set, and stamped in Pacific Point Ink.

I decorated the envelope flap with a coordinating piece of Birthday Memories DSP.

 

The layout of today’s birthday card was inspired by CAS(E) this Sketch.

I’ll stick with saying “hi” most of the time, but an occasional “hey” will be good for my youthful soul.

Thank you for visiting me today. Here’s to youth!
