Let’s celebrate!! How to make a simple birthday card is the task at hand today! First off, THANK YOU for all your positive feedback about the SIP CARDS I share.  I love hearing from you and I love how these simple stamps, ink, and paper cards are inspiring you to make more (and send more) greeting cards.

If you are new to following my blog and videos, you are probably wondering what are SIP CARDS???  They are simply cards that use just STAMPS, INK & PAPER.  I think so often we get so wrapped up in needing so much STUFF, and it gets a bit overwhelming. So I am trying to bring it back to simple at least once a week with SIP CARDS.  Today I have some SIP cards for you using the Stampin’ Up! Broadway Birthday stamp set.  And I’ll be back on Wednesday STEPPING UP these cards by adding in the coordinating dies!!! We all need birthday card ideas, right?



How to Make A Simple Birthday Card SIP Video:

Check out today’s simple stamping video to see how easy these birthday cards are to make.  It’s full of tips for stamping with the Broadway Birthday stamp set.  Now remember, if you like this stamp set, you can get it now as a bundle and save 10%.  I will be back on Wednesday with cards that “step up” these cards using the dies, and I have to admit–they are super cute!
