Sunshine Birthday Card Ideas - Shannon Jaramillo Stamps of Life

This Sizzix Happy Birthday Card Drop Ins Die die is just F.U.N. I want to use it all the time! Today I played at mixing up Pixie, Candy and Grape. Just the names sound yummy, don’t they!! Ha!!

I started with a base in Pixie. Then I die cut the sentiment in both Powdered Sugar and Candy. I added adhesive to the front of the Candy colored sentiment when I die cut it so when I peeled the adhesive backing off, the front of the die was sticky. I used Stephanie’s white glitter to add all this delightful sparkle. Yum. Then I adhered the Candy sentiment with the Powdered Sugar sentiment, just slightly offset to give it a bit more dimension. The purple flowers and the Grape twine? They are from Card Kits. If you don’t subscribe, you might want to consider doing so. Lots of fun goodies in the kits every month!

    Hi Shannon – Saw your card and decided to order the Happy Birthday Drop In. I’m one of Mary’s Pals and usually don’t order anything but SU but loved your card and thought this was such a fun look. I make bday cards for all the staff at my son’s middle school. I really love your cards and your style. Thanks for inspiring me!

      Hi Ruth! I’m thrilled you love the Happy Birthday Drop In! It really grabbed me when I saw it and I have been having a blast using it. Making cards for the staff at your son’s school is a true gift of the heart, I’m sure they appreciate it! And THANK YOU for lifting me up with your kind words! Happy crafting 🙂
