Stampin' Up!® 2016:2018 In Colours Simple Birthday Cards

Hi everyone, its that time of the year when we say goodbye to the Stampin' Up!® In Colours from the last 2 years. I will really miss Dapper Denim, Emerald Envy and Sweet Sugar Plum. I am personally not that bothered by Peekaboo Peach and of course Flirty Flamingo is staying.

To show off the In Colours I decided to make 5 simple birthday cards that demonstrate how well out cord stock, ink and ribbon all co-ordinate perfectly. I have used the Sale-A-Bration Springtime Foils paper - sorry if you missed out on the beautiful paper but I do know many of you got your hands on it so this is a lovely way of using them.

If you want these colours I would go to my shop and stock up now as they are selling out fast. Once they are sold out Stampin' Up! will not be stocking anymore.

  • Card blank is a standard piece of card stock cut in half, folded in half
  • For a A4 sheet this measures 5 7/8" x 8 1/4" - adjust for your cardstock size
  • The mat is 1/4" thinner and shorter
  • For A4 this measures 5 5/8" x 3 7/8" - - adjust for your cardstock size
  • The mat was inked using a sponge and the matching ink for the card stock
  • I cut out the Happy Birthday using the large Die in the matching colour as the card base
  • To help with the stick of this to the card I would probably use a double sided adhesive sheet in the future.
  • I used the matching Striped Grosgrain Ribbon
  • I used a small length of Whisper white Sheer Ribbon to tie a bow for the finishing touch
