Big on Birthdays for a Masculine Birthday Card
Inside the Lines Designer Series Paper--2017 Sale-a-Bration

Big on Birthdays Stamp Set with 2017 Sale-a-Bration Glimmer Paper Stack

This is a blue version of another card I did for my team meeting in February.  You can see the other version here where I used Sweet Sugarplum.  I love how changing up the Glimmer Paper (free 2017 Sale-a-Bration item!) can be the springboard for a totally different color scheme of an already great card.  They both feature that lovely bold Happy Birthday from Big on Birthdays stamp set in the 2017 Occasions Catalog.

The other change I made was to go with the wider Very Vanilla Stitched Satin Ribbon.  I think it goes nicely with the large, bold Happy Birthday from Big on Birthdays stamp set.  Once again, I used a small strip of Blooms & Bliss Designer Series Paper.  The colors in that DSP are gorgeous and so easy to use!

That's it for today, just a short and sweet share.  As always, the Stampin' Up! supplies used here are listed and linked below for your convenience.  Please remember you earn a FREE 2017 Sale-a-Bration item for every $50 you spend through the end of March, so top up your order and get something free!

I think this glimmer paper--which comes in a 6 x 6 stack with Sweet Sugarplum, Pool Party, and Mint Macaron--is a must-have item!  I can hardly believe it's free!  The choices of free items are here and here. Let me know if you have any ordering issues or questions at all. I'm glad to help!
