In our family we celebrate a lot of birthday's during the holiday season. (My oldest was unexpectedly born on Christmas Eve!) Through the years we have remained steadfast in celebrating each birthday and then ringing in whatever holiday we may be celebrating – Thanksgiving, Christmas, even New Year's. Yes my husband was born on New Year's day.
So when I make a birthday card during the holiday season I make sure I don't use holiday colors. Here is an example of a recent birthday card made for a dear friend whose birthday sometimes lands on Thanksgiving.
Isn't that clean and fresh looking. This stamp set is called Too Kind and is a two-step stamp process. This is where your Stamp-a-ma-jig comes in as an essential tool. There is a great video at Stampin' Up! to illustrate how to use the Stamp-a-ma-jig. Check it out here www.stampinup.com/showmehow This inexpensive tool can take your creations to a whole new level. Note: I usually purchase two-step stamp sets in wood as I can easily make stamping templates with some clear acrylic sheets and my Stazon ink and simply keep them in the box with the stamps. Super easy to use then when I need a quick card.
I hope you learned something and enjoyed the card today. Do you have holiday birthdays in your family? How do you make them unique and special? I would love to hear from you.
