Today’s card is the card that I sent to my Uncle who has a St. Patrick’s day birthday. I used the retired Stampin Up lips stamp with Garden Green ink to stamp the sexy green lips. The sentiment is from the Petite Pairs stampset #127497. The banner was created by cutting various widths of print poetry DSP paper stack and hand notching the strip to create a whimsy banner. I added the strip of starfruit double stitched ribbon.
I think that having a St. Pattys day birthday would be second best to a Halloween birthday but since I celebrate birthmonth in March then I can celebrate St. Pattys too.
Not only is this card a KISS (Keep it simple stupid) concept but also a happy accident. Cammie used a damaged piece of white cardstock and embossed using the finial press #115963 folder on a piece of damwhite cardstock and flipped over the “dirty side” to get the de-embossed look. She then stamped and cut the mustache from the many mustache stamp #122917, die cut the ampersand from the silver glimmer paper#124005 and the junior timeless type die #115951. The lips are Stamped with the SWAK stamp #120861 and glossed up with the iridescent embossing powder #101930. The white layer is then mounted on a melon mambo dotted DSP.
