We’re coming to the end of Birthday Card Week so I thought I’d end it for you with a bright birthday card.  And you can’t beat a card made with free stamps!  Just remember that you only have until March 31st to get free stamps from Sale-A-Bration.

If you like this bright birthday card, you can pin it to your Pinterest board by clicking the Pinterest button at the bottom of the post.  Or leave a comment!  We LOVE those!  Ann reads me the comments and my emails before I go to bed at night.  You could let us know if you liked Birthday Card Week and if we should do a themed week again.

Ann started this card by folding a half sheet of card stock (5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″) in half to 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″.

Then she cut 1-1/8″ off the card front so that those chevrons she punched out with the Chevron Border Punch would show.   The color combination is inspired by the Fresh Prints Designer Series Paper Stack.


Coastal Cabana Birthday Card


Do you think she put too much Real Red on there?  It’s an awful lot!  Of course, it’s Ann’s favorite color so I am not surprised.

This card would definitely wake up someone when they opened their mail in the middle of the night.  Coastal Cabana, Real Red and Whisper White.  WOW!

Here’s some of what else she used:
