Darkroom Door released a fabulous set of border stamps a few months ago. I was the lucky recipient of two of them, thanks to a "guess-the-new-release-theme" contest on their Instagram account. I waited until after the holidays to pull out the first one, because they are SO BIG (see last photo), and I wasn't sure my small cards would do them justice. But who doesn't love a crafty challenge, right?
Birthdays are all about (eating cake) celebrating numbers - an excellent reason to put my new numbers border to use. Stamping the image only four times gave me a large background to work with, and then I found just the right sentiment stamps to go with all those fun numbers.
|I used Kaliedacolor ink pads and some fussy cutting with |
the numbers border from Darkroom Door;
Happy Birthday is from Stampin' Up.
|Forever 29 is by Unity Stamp Co.|
I stamped the cupcake (an older stamp from Artful Inkables)
on printed paper and adhered the bottom to the one I colored.
|Another apropos sentiment from the So Glad You Were Born |
kit by Unity Stamp Co. The matching dots and color
on the washi tape and cupcake paper were just luck!
|Look at the size of this border! So many possibilities!|
I think sending birthday cards is a sweet way to make my numbered days count.
