This card was a lot of fun because I simply picked a pattern pattern paper I liked and printed the background writing on the paper. It's a nice change from white or a plain colored cardstock. HINT: This card gives a little preview for the feel of one of my future stamp sets!
This next card features a super fun stamp set from Close to My Heart that has all different stamps to build your own cake and candles. I love it! The sentiment I gave you is in two sizes. I always love sentiments bigger and bolder. The big option is fun, but you can also use the smaller one as pictured in my sample project with a 1.5 inch circle punch. This is also makes life easy if you want to make a bunch of cards at once.
