Have an Amazing Birthday

Here's my card for May's second Viva la Verve sketch.  I made another birthday card using the sketch.  This one features one of my current favorite sets, Verve's Simply Amazing.  Love the fonts and sentiments in it!

Have an Amazing Birthday card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps from Verve Stamps
I die cut a tag from pink cardstock for my sentiment.  After stamping the "have an" and "birthday" words from the set, I completed the sentiment with the die cut word "amazing."  To give it dimension, I layered the word on a craft foam cut out.  The tag was placed on a green cardstock panel over a piece of chevron patterned paper and a girly paper doily.  I wrapped a bit of pink ribbon around the panel, then topped the tag with a piece of knotted ribbon for a finished look.  For a bit of sparkle, I arranged a trio of pink sequins around the words.  The finished panel was adhered to a pink card base that matches the tag.

Materials Used:
Simply Amazing stamp set, Amazing Adjectives dies (Verve Stamps); Memento Luxe Rose Bud ink (Tsukineko/IMAGINE Crafts); Simply Chartreuse, Sweet Blush, and Aqua Mist cardstock (Papertrey Ink); Splendid Sunshine 6x6 paper pad (Echo Park); SugarCuts Gift Tag die (SugarPea Designs); pink sequins (Treehouse Studio); Curly Label punch (Stampin' Up!); pink grosgrain ribbon; white paper doily, craft foam


  1. This is such a cute, fun card with the bright colors and the zigzag paper and doily with the tag.
