Simon Says Stamp just released the Celebrate You release today, May 15, 2019. I’m sharing a card I made using the stamp set, Big Birthday Greetings. This set is filled with all sorts of ways to say Happy Birthday! I decided to make mine a little silly by adding lots of candles to go with the phrase, “Whoa. You’re old.” This might be a good card for one of my “older” brothers! Here’s a few close-ups of the card. 

To make this card, I stamped, colored (using Copic Sketch Markers) and cut out the individual candles. I adhered them to the bottom of my card front, cut from black cardstock. This is a 5″ X 7″ card. I added the white smoke using white pigment ink and applied it using a soft cosmetic brush. I stamped my sentiments using Versamark ink and heat embossed it using white embossing powder on the center front. Next, I stamped the sentiment again in black on a separate piece of white cardstock and colored in some of the letters using coordinating Copics that I used for the candles. I fussy cut out the inside of the colored in letters to the black front. A few dots were added using the Signo White Gel pen and some glossy enamel dots, too. That’s it!

Thanks for visiting! Check out the entire release and more inspiration on Instagram using hashtag, #SSSCelebrateYou.
