Numbered Card

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.
