Today's birthday card is the perfect masculine birthday card. Why, you may ask? Because it isn't geared for a specific occupation or hobby. It combines the Burlap Background Stamp with the Confetti Celebration Stamp Set.
The color combination is Tranquil Tide, Crumb Cake and Very Vanilla. The tone-on-tone look of the Burlap image in Tranquil Tide Ink on Tranquil Tide Cardstock is bold. And, so is the "hooray" sentiment. It was punched out with the Starburst Punch and backed with a 2 1/4" Circle Punch in Crumb Cake Cardstock. The other sentiments were punched out with the Classic Label Punch.
A four-inch piece of the 5/8" Burlap Ribbon was trimmed with some Paper Snips and attached with SNAIL Adhesive. The "hooray" sentiment is attached with Dimensionals over the ribbon.
Stampin' Up!'s Christmas in July promotion makes it easier than ever to sign up to be a demonstrator! New recruits will receive a FREE Essentials Gift Pack including Paper Snips, SNAIL Adhesive, Grid Paper, two D Clear Blocks and a Bone Folder. That's an added value of $52!
Last Sunday, we had a family reunion with Dan's family. Relatives from California, Wisconsin and different cities in Minnesota were there. The weather was perfect to spend outside all day. Dan's brother lives on a lake, so there were pontoon rides, paddle boards, floating mats, inflatables, sand castles and water balloons to keep everyone entertained. It was wonderful to meet new relatives and to catch up with everyone.
Today is a tropical Tuesday. Ugh! Humidity is not my friend. Thank you for visiting my blog today. I hope you were inspired!
