Stampin Up Amazing Birthday Card

I know I make more birthday cards than any other type of card and I think it is because as a general rule people send more birthday cards than any other card. Like I said a few posts ago, my card stash is running low and I am working to restock. Another reason I need to restock is because BFF Carmen is coming to visit soon and I will have to trade cards for the awesome Graphic 45 paper she sent me recently. She will never take money, even if I beg, instead she always wants to be paid in cards or other creations. 

The Amazing Birthday stamp set was another one I ordered in the spring and my groups used over the summer when making birthday cards.

Supplies Used:

Stampin Up
  Everyday Enchantment paper
  Lucky Limeade, Calypso Coral Ribbon
3/4" Circle Punch
Button Hole Punch
Paper Studio brads
Mounting Foam

I actually found the idea for this card in a Google search and really fell in love with it. I did have to stamp off the "TODAY" and "AMAZING" and cut them out by hand but it was worth the time and effort, and then used mounting foam to layer them on top of the original stamped image. I used a button hole punch to thread the ribbon through and tie off. The little "IT'S FOR YOU" was stamped and then punched out with the 3/4" circle punch and then I layered it on a 7/8" scallop circle I punched out. 

I left the inside of the card blank because I am thinking the card can be used for a variety of occasions even though birthday is what I had in mind when I made it. 


  1. Love your card, thanks for sharing!

  2. Congrats to your Daughter and Son-in-Law! So happy for you and your family! You and your BFF did a great job in a very short time, I'm setting here with a few happy tears... Hug
