Happy Birthday! (the awkward family member edition!)

I love my family, I really do, but there are certain family members who cause me a stupid amount of stress when it comes to birthdays!

This past weekend it was James’ youngest sisters 16th  birthday, cue a full week of stress about birthday cards, presents and wrapping! I love my sister-in-law, but making a card for a 16 year old girl I swear is harder than making men’s birthday cards!

I think I was channelling my inner Laura Bassen when I made this card, I LOVE watching her waffle whilest she is cardmaking on her YouTube channel. Laura makes a heap of cards with rainbow colours, which I don’t do very often. My mum once commented that all my cards were dull, well Mother, this one will knock your eyes out!

I grabbed my Brights collection ink pads; Melon Mambo, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive, Tempting Turquoise and Rich Razzleberry, to stamp this leaf from Crazy About You. The sentiment is also from the same stamp set, birthday stamped in Rich Razzleberry and Happy die cut from Melon Mambo card stock using the coordinating framelits!

There is a little extra detail on this one, but the camera hasnt’ picked it up very well. I scored a line 0.5 cm round the edge of the stamped piece before attaching it onto a card base of Thick Whisper White with Dimensionals
