This is a birthday card you’ll find irresistible and quick to make! It’s a piece of cake to make actually! You can create the simple version but if you want to step it up and add a few extra fun elements, I have you covered there too. I love sharing now to wow techniques with you. In today’s video, I have not one, not two, but three coloring ideas to show you for this birthday card!


I am using the Stampin’ Up! Piece of Cake stamp set from the Occasions catalog (see page 18). This bundle was SO popular it was out of stock for months but it’s back and ready for you to add to your next order! It’s a fabulous stamp set and an even better bundle! This set makes great birthday cards for friends or family but it’s also a great set to make wedding anniversary or wedding cards!!

Today’s card is a Flash Card 2.0. I love creating cards with a card base, those 2 little pieces of cardstock and nothing more…. simple stamping at its’ best, I say! Ready to learn how to make it?

On a personal note, today is a very special day. It’s a day that Ginny has dreamed about for the past 12 years…. graduation day! Tonight my youngest will no longer be a high school student. Wow! It’s hard to believe. I’ve had people ask if I’m sad that my baby is graduating. Honestly? No. I am so excited about her future so sadness isn’t something I’m feeling.  Today is going to be amazing — truly a day to celebrate!

Today’s quote is for Ginny! Take that diploma and change the world, Ginny!

QUOTE OF THE DAY – “You are educated. Your certification is in your degree. You may think of it as the ticket to the good life. Let me ask you to think of an alternative. Think of it as your ticket to change the world.” — Tom Brokaw
