Celebrating My Brother on His Birthday!

My brother celebrates his birthday in the early days of May, and with my travels, I was a little behind getting my cards finished and off in the mail so his will be a few days late.  

I decided to use a card that I had already completed in a card class back in January that I brought with me on my travels.  The original card was designed by Luci Kirschbaum and I re-created my card exactly like the original design.  It features one of the new, fun stamp and die sets in the 2016 Stampin' Up Occasions Catalog.  I loved this card's design when I made it and knew I would probably save it for a Mike's birthday.


With the inside of the card totally blank, I needed to create an inside that complimented the front design by using paper layering, embellishments and a nice verse suited to my brother's birthday.  Below is my finished inside design to share before I ship it off in the mail:

Recipe:  Stampin' Up products:  Cardstocks--Daffodil Delight, Hello Honey, Whisper White, Pool Party.  Ink--Delightful Dijon, Basic Black.  Stamps/Dies--Sunburst Sayings/ Sunburst Thinlits.  Punches--1-1/2" Circle, 1-1/4" Circle.  Rhinestones.  EK Punch--Scallop Corner (inside).  Computer-made verse.  Size:  4-1/4" x 5-1/4".
