Hi friends! It’s Bobbi here with a BIG and BOLD greeting card! I am using the Big Bold Greeting stamps and coordinating dies by Sunny Studio Stamps for this vibrant birthday card. This is such a quick and easy card to make and is age-appropriate for anyone. I am using a fun paper from the Spring Fever paper pack that just makes the card happy and that cute sun is from the Garden Critters stamp set and coordinating dies.

I stamped the “Make a Wish” phrase using three ink colors, stamping one color at a time. I used a Memento ink in yellow, orange and pink. I cut out the phrase using the matching die. I also cut three candles from the same set and colored them using Copic Sketch markers in B05, B02, V09, V04, YG17 and YG03. The flames were done in R17, YR07, and YR19. I drew the wick with a fine-tip black marker. I also stamped the sun from the Garden Critters stamp set and cut it out using its coordinating die. I colored the sun using Copics in Y08, Y15, Y19 and Y38. I added white highlights to the sun and the candles using my Gelly Roll pen.

To make the background for this 5″ X 7″ card, I cut a 5″ wide X 4-1/2″ tall piece of pattern paper and attached it to the front of the card base. Next, I added dots of Pearl Pen in coordinating colors to the scallop joints at the top on each of the pink strands. These dots of color give the paper dimension and interest in a quick and easy way. Note: Pearl Pen is similar to Nuvo Drops. Either will work for this application. 

I attached the sentiment, the candles and the sun to the white space at the top of the card, offsetting the design to the right. I used foam tabs under the sentiment to make it stand out above everything else for emphasis. I also added accent dots around the collage for more festive fun. You can see from the photo above how much dimension this card has. It’s so cute and so easy to do! This card is ready to send.
