The NC Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators Blog Hop is celebrating with many Happy Birthday Wishes!  Yes, it is the last Sunday of the Month.  Happy Easter wishes to you as well.  Now, come and join us for some Happy Birthday Wishes!

North Carolina Stampin’ Up! Demos Happy Birthday Wishes

Happy Birthday Wishes are moving around the world because we ALL celebrate birthdays!  One of the best ways to say Happy Birthday is to actually send a physical card.  I know that I enjoy getting cards in the mail.  My birthday was earlier this month and I’m still getting Happy Birthday Wishes in the mail!  Words cannot express how meaningful these cards are especially knowing my friends and family took the time to write a note then drop it in the mail so I could have a physical reminder.

So…  Let us get going with the Happy Birthday Wishes Celebration!

160327-NCSUD Blog Hop001The first card I’m sharing features the Something To Say Stamp Set along with the Party Wishes Stamp set.  The colors are gender neutral great for male or female birthdays.  The background also features Timeless Texture Stamp Set.  Since this card was used for my Cards-A-Latte at Starbucks, I used the Tip Top Taupe in the background to create what looks like coffee rings and little splashes of Delightful Dijon and Mint Macaroon.  

The Sentiment features the Mint Macaroon. With the Party Punch Pack is perfect for punching out the tiny balloons.  I used the Decorative Label punch to punch out the sentiment then created a border using the Mint Macaroon Card Stock and pieced it together.
