Today I have a quick handmade Birthday card that will be your go-to. It’s an easy birthday card, but the post is much more.  There is a story behind this card and I have a lot of fun pictures to share.

A couple of weeks ago Stampin’ Up! had their annual OnStage event–their convention.  My daughter Jami attended with me and I made sure she got in on all the crazy fun that demonstrators have!  I made her SWAP Cards!

She lives in St Louis and has limited supplies, so I designed a card for her, cut all the card stock, and sent her all the supplies.  Here is the creative handmade birthday card she made.


Here is the package I sent…everything cut and ready for her to stamp.

She is ready to start stamping!


To ensure she knew how to make it, the video I have I made previously so that I could share it with her as her instructions!

So let’s start with that….  Not only did I make it for Jami, but for you too.  This is a super fun and easy birthday card with a stamp set that is so perfect because it has “inside” and “outside” verses and you could make it with any colors!

Even Sage Weenie had to get in on the action!
