Huge “Happy”


Today’s birthday card has a Magenta Madness card base (8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″) and a layer of Basic Black Cardstock (4″ X 5 1/4″).

There’s a cute, little balloon in the Special Someone Stamp Set that I thought would be a good size for my huge “HAPPY.”  I began by stamping the balloon’s outline in Memento Black Ink on Whisper White Cardstock (1/8″ smaller than the Basic Black Layer), letting some of the balloons float off the card. After stamping the strings, I used the solid balloon stamp to fill in “stamped off” ink shades of Magenta Madness and Melon Mambo.

I wanted “HAPPY,” from the Happy Dies set, to have dimension, so used a Foam Adhesive Sheet (4″ X 1 1/2″), and Magenta Madness Cardstock, cut the same size. I placed the die on top, ran it through my Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine, peeled off the backing, and attached it to the card front. It was so much easier than attaching with tiny pieces of Dimensionals!


To complete the sentiment, I stamped “birthday,” from the Well Written Stamp Set, in Memento Black Ink,  and used the smallest Stitched Rectangles Die for cutting.


My layout was inspired by TGIF. Actually, the colors and theme too!
