Handmade Card Birthday or Congratulations

If you are looking for an idea that's a handmade card birthday idea or congratulations, this is the card for you!

I am using one stamp set to provide texture and make my own background plus a sentiment stamp set that I think is one of the most overlooked sets in the SU Spring catalog.

Here are the sets I am using…

This is the sentiment set that I think gets missed.  It's a stamp set that coordinates with a card kit BUT regardless of how cute the card kit is, I am not a card kit kinda person – but I LOVE this stamp set.  When I first saw it, I instantly thought MASCULINE cards.  It's not cutesy in any way – making it a perfect stamp set for guy cards, but can be used on any type of card.


Then when we match it with these fun circles, the possibilities are endless!



So what are we making today?  Lemme show you!



How fun is this?!?!?  It's soooo easy to make.  I can't wait to share with you how to make this.  Let's start with the supplies:
