Make a Birthday Card with Magical Day!


Today's project is a fun birthday card with the Magical Day stamp set from the Occasions Catalog. 

I love this set and the coordinating framelits and designer paper.  These products make a fun card for kids of all ages.   Last week, I made this box with a darling mermaid from the set.

The rich colors from the designer paper inspired the coloring of the knight with my Stampin' Blends.  I think I could color with those beauties all day very relaxing.

This card is a makeover of the one seen in the video below.  I switched things up a bit since I needed to add a sentiment.  Rather than add another die cut or punched element, I decided to white emboss the sentiment directly on the card base.  It just pops on that Dapper Denim base, doesn't it?

Take a look at the video below to see the basic steps for this card.

Lisa's Inklings:

  • This is a great layout if you need a starting point for a card. 
  • Use the designer paper that you choose as inspiration for your ink and card stock color choices.
  • Try combining patterns as I did on both the card in the video and the makeover with Magical Day.  Notice one print is bolder than the other on each card.
