A week ago we celebrated a 30th birthday and Marquee Messages was my stamp of choice. This son is a challenging one to create for as his interests are not ones that are accommodated by the Stampin' Up!® range of stamps. He is a Parkour teacher, spends a lot of time glued to his computer, loves our cat and is a good son. Pretty Kitty is a bit too cute for a man, so as I said, Marquee Messages it was.
Originally I was making a standard size card, and only had Bermuda Bay and Lemon-Lime Twist picked out. You'll see I ended up using that last weekend to make a card with the sweet sunflower from Painted Harvest. After I'd decided I needed a larger card, it seemed a good idea to add another colour. With the photopolymer stamps, it is easy to place them just where you want and use different phrases to personalise the card.
Below is the card he received for his 29th birthday, similar but different! I hope I can come up with something DIFFERENT next year.
