Happy Non-Christmas Birthday

Do you have a December birthday?  Do you hate having Christmas and your birthday all mashed together?  My birthday is December 23rd.  My family did a good job of keeping by birthday and Christmas separate, but I’ve still gotten my share of birthday cards that look Christmas-y.  So, this month was sure to make a non-Christmas birthday card using the City Sidewalks papers.


While this card is obviously for a boy (and probably more of a child) – it’s still awful cute.  I started with the green patterned paper from City Sidewalks and added a bit of Sapphire to frame the stamped images.  I used the Racecar Birthday (B1531) stamp set with Pomegranate ink for the car, Sapphire for the Happy Birthday and black for the flags & wheels.


The car image includes the wheels so after stamping the car in Pomegranate, I stamped just the wheels in black and cut them out, then attached them with a glue dot to give them just a touch of lift.  I finished off the card with some Silver Shimmer Trim and sequins.
