Fancy DIY Birthday Cards

Fancy DIY Birthday Cards -

Today is my son's birthday, and I wanted some ideas for fancy DIY birthday cards suitable for a man.

I wish I could take credit for this fabulous card idea, but I'm not sure I could ever come up with something this impressive on my own. One of our French demonstrators shared it on Stampin' Up!'s private demonstrator board and I just fell in love with it! I've always loved her creativity, and I knew right then I wanted to replicate this awesome card for my son.

I did copy it pretty much to a T as much as I could… you can't improve on perfection! You can check out her original card here.

Of course, the Gumball Greetings Bundle was used to create it, along with the Awesome Otters Sale-A-Bration set. He loved otters when he was a little boy, so it was just perfect! Pick up the bundle and the Gumball Machine Shaker Domes and the Frosted Beads used for the shaker, and your order will qualify for the Awesome Otters set for FREE!

I used the new Natural Tones Stampin' Blends to color in the otters. It's a complete range of natural tones consisting of 10 alcohol marker blends to create the perfect tone.

The designer paper is from the Flowering Fields 12″ x 12″ collection. The “metallic” parts of the machine was cut out of some Silver Foil Specialty Paper.

I used the “Wishing you the Sweetest Day Ever” stamp on the inside, stamped in Real Red.
