Happy Birthday Postage Punch

Today's card features the Pretty Postage stamp set along with the coordinating Postage Stamp Punch. One of the things I love most about Stampin' Up! is how everything coordinates and they take a lot of the guess work out of making a really cute card. This card is quick and simple, and who wouldn't want to receive a hand made card from someone they love. I don't know about you, but I never throw out a hand made card that is given to me for a special occasion!

I colored the birthday cake stamp using the Stampin' Write Markers and stamped on scrap Whisper White Cardstock. These are great when you want different portions of your image to have different colors because you can color directly onto the stamp. And these markers are well worth the investment; I bought mine 5 years ago, I use them all the time, and I've not yet had to replace a single one!

I punched these out with the Postage Stamp Punch and layered them with Dimensionals on squares punched out with the 1 3/8" Square Punch. I added three Marina Mist Brads to the bottom to round out the card and then I was finished!
