Hi, Stampers. I’ve been feeling a little down today. I lost my dad 22 years ago and today would have been his 83rd birthday (since he died at 61, is so hard to picture him being that old…). Anyway – I decided to share a bright and cheery happy birthday card to try to brighten my mood.

This happy birthday card starts with a Daffodil Delight card base – 8-1/2″ x 11″, scored at 4-1/4″. Next up is a 2″ x 5-1/2″ layer of Gorgeous Grape CS. I used the Stamparatus (hinge stamping technique) to stamp the word HAPPY (from the Biggest Wish stamp set) in various colors onto a 1-3/4″ x 5-1/4″ layer of Basic White CS.

The word “birthday” (of happy birthday) was stamped in Memento Black ink onto Basic White CS. This was then cut out using my Brother Scan-n-Cut (you can see my Amazon affiliate link for the Scan-n-Cut HERE). This was then adhered to the card front using mini stampin’ dimensionals.

Inside my bright and cheery happy birthday card is a 4″ x 5-1/4″ layer of Basic White CS. The sentiment, from the Driving By Sale-a-bration stamp set, was stamped in Highland Heather ink. In the lower right corner, the car with balloons (also from the Driving By stamp set) was stamped in Memento Black ink and colored using the Stampin’ Blends.
