Shabby Chic Quick Birthday Card

I love how versatile the the “Number of Years” stamp set, from the Stampin’ Up! Occasions Catalogue is for making quick and easy Birthday cards.  I got this card from Sonya van Stee, a demonstrator on my team from St. Catherines, Ontario.  I love how she used the Shabby chic look of the letters and matched her background paper to match.

For the background papers, Sonya used some of the stamps from a new stamp set, also from the Occasions Catalogue, called “Timeless Texture“.  And she also just inked up the paper with her inkpad for a truly shabby look.  And although this card is quick to put together, I love that she took just a minute to round the corners of the main piece.  And the stamped piece is attached with Washi Tape to add to the Shabby Chic look.Shabby Chic Birthday card using Number of Years stamp set
