To honor this special time in Marissa's life, I decided to combine these two themes in her birthday card.
MDS to the rescue!
I wanted a jaunty-looking car for the focal point of the card. I found this cutie in the On the Go stamp brush set. The traffic signs were also part of that set. How perfect, huh? The wheels became extra fancy with the addition of the oversize star brads, retired from Stampin' Up!. I also cut out the car on a second print I made of the card background, and popped it up with Stampin' Dimensionals.
I added strings from the balloons from the Cake and Ice Cream set to all the traffic signs. See them? To make it really festive and BIRTHDAY, I added some of the balloons and their strings from the same set. I finished the composition with a happy neutral DSP for the background.
At my Creation Station downstairs, I completed the card. A black mat surrounding the image, then mounted to a bright yellow card base was the route I took. Route. Get it? Driving?
A little happy birthday from the Bitty Banners set cut out with the matching Framelits and edged in bright yellow completed the birthday theme.
Good Luck and Happy Birthday to you, my Marissa!
I hope it's a 16th birthday you will always remember fondly.
