Happy Birthday Background

Hi all! Happy Friday!

Katie Gehring here today. We have been celebrating Neat and Tangled's first birthday all this month and I brought a birthday card using Everyday Circles to the party to share with you!


Using the "birthday" sentiment from Everyday Circles, I built a background by stamping the word repeatedly in 3 ink colors. Next, I die cut a circle in the bottom third of the card and mounted the stamped panel onto a piece of black cardstock with foam tape.

I stamped the solid "Happy" circle onto a scrap of cream cardstock and punched it out with a 1/2" circle punch.  I centered it inside the die cut circle and secured it with some adhesive.


I love how the black mat forms another border around the circle.  As a finishing touch, I added a few black sequins.  

Since you can't have a party without presents, Danielle is including this sweet little 3 x 2" set called Dreams with all stamp orders placed this month.  With only a little over a week left in the month, be sure to place an order and to claim yours! 

I hope you have a great weekend!
