Birthday Card & A Give-Away

Here's one of the Birthday Cards I'm making for a friend. I have about 3 I need to make and get sent out soon for friends having birthdays.  I haven't added the sentiment to this one yet. I'm going to show you some options for that below....

Project #333 of this year
Before I start showing you sentiment options, let me give you the details about my card.
  • A2 size card base (5 1/2" x 4 1/4") using green cardstock from Recollections
  • Background glittered, striped paper from The Paper Studio called Birthday Extravaganza cut @ 5 1/4" x 4".
  • ELEGANT EDGES for Sentiment mat. "Butterfly2" page 51 cut @ 3 1/4" with Shadow feature.
  • BIRTHDAY BASH for Cake with Candle page 25 cut @ 4".
  • Heart rhinestones from Studio 112.
Now.... let's talk about Sentiment options.... K Andrew Designs has lots of sentiment & image stamps.

This is the Owly Hoo set. I really like this one! I could use...
Happy thoughts
Owl always Love You
Hoot Hoot
Yoo Hoo
Happy bird-day

The below is the Winter Wishes Set. I could use....
No Peeking
Happy Greetings

The below is the Coffee & Tea For You & Me set. I could use....
Have a Fun Birthday
Love Ya Sugar
Good Time

This is just some of the stamp sets available at K Andrew Designs. You can see why I love the Mix 'n' Match sets so much. There are so many possibilities. You probably see other great ideas for this card too, don't you?  So.... I think we should do a giveaway!  Just leave me a comment with what YOU think should be the sentiment on this card using ANY of the stamp sets K Andrew Designs offers.

  1. I just love this idea! Could you incorporate the alicious part of the sentiment? Have a Perfect-alicious Birthday? If possible I think that would be cool! Love that cake! I want some!

  2. hmmm blogger says required field must not be blank but my comment is showing...did it post?

  3. love this bright colored, happy card Janis!

    Have a delightful birthday!

    using winter wishes 'delightful' and the rest of the words from Coffee & tea!
    I love mixing and matching my sentiments stamps!

  4. These are cute stamp sets. I like Have a Fun Birthday! Really cute card. :)


  5. cute card... I am thinking you should use ~ love ya sugar!!! too cute

  6. What a cute card, love the cake. I would use the Happy from the winter set and the Birthday from the Coffee/tea set or use Have a Great Day from the Coffee/Tea set. There are many great possibilities though,and I love your suggestions too.

  7. I see "Happy Birthday".....not necessarily for its originality but for the two fonts the words are written in. A script for "Happy" from the Winter Wishes set and "Birthday" from the Coffee & Tea for You & Me set. Great card. Lots of ways to mix & match the stamps.

  8. I would use "have a great day friend". Using the coffee and tea for you and me and the winter wishes set. Thanks for sharing and allowing us to help pick the sentiment. That is fun.

  9. "sprinkled with love" from the food for thought set:-)

  10. I like the coffee and tea set for "on your birthday"
    Super fun card!

  11. On the stamp set, Food for thought, you could use sprinkled with love or sprinkled with fun, (depending on who you're giving it to) since there were cute little sprinkles on the cake!

  12. How about Today is your day from the Positive Thoughts set. I love this cake. Looks yummy to me!!! :)

  13. Ahhh... brain overload! Too many fun choices! LOVE THESE STAMP SETS. I really need to ask Santa for some. And since I've been such a good girl this year, I think I should ask for Elegant Edges and Birthday Bash, too! :-)

    How about "Birthday-alicious!" using Birthday from Coffee & Tea for You & Me and -alicious from Owly Hoo? That cupcake sure looks yummy!
