Hello everyone and happy Sunday! Yesterday was my friend Kim’s brother Kevin’s Birthday. They had a BBQ and thankfully had tents because it poured here on and off today. We had little bursts of sunshine so all wasn’t bad. Kevin is Autistic and one of the happiest people I know. He got video games and Mets tickets but his favorite gifts are coke, pickles and BBQ potato chips! Wouldn’t life be great if that’s all it took for us to be happy?
I used the closest colors I could come to the Mets colors for his card. The base of the card is Tangerine Tango Card Stock and I used the Distressed Dots Wood Mount Background Stamp stamped in Tangerine Tango for a nice tone-on-tone background. The happy birthday is from the You’re Amazing Stamp Set and is stamped in Tangerine Tango. I used the circle from the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch pack to create the ticket corners and also to punch out the two circles of Tangerine Tango on either side. I used the Apothecary Accents Framelits Dies to cut out a piece of Brights Stack Designer Series Paper. The greeting is mounted to the cut out with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I used the Blue Ribbon Stamp Set for main image and it is stamped in Pacific Point. Then I cut it out with my Paper Snips and cut off the ribbon part from the bottom and adhered that to the card with SNAIL. Two pieces of Tangerine Tango Striped 5/8″ Grosgrain Ribbon formerly from the clearance rack are flagged and adhered to the ribbon part and then the round is adhered with SNAIL over that. The center image is from the same set and is stamped in Tangerine Tango, punched out with the 1 3/8″ Circle Punch and mounted to the main image with a Stampin’ Dimensional too. I love the simplicity of this card and hope that you enjoyed it too. Happy Birthday Kevin and to all of you thank you for visiting and have a great day!
