A Great Big Scripty Happy Birthday

Scripty Happy Birthday Hot Foil Card - featuring Essentials by Ellen

Happy Friday, friends! I’m taking a nice extra-long weekend right now because it just so happens to be my birthday on Sunday, and with that in mind, I figured it was only appropriate to post a birthday-themed card today. This one is super simple and straightforward, but was so fun to make and I really liked the way it turned out.

I didn’t think I’d say this when I first started crafting, but there’s something about repeated stamping that just feels…. therapeutic? The Essentials by Ellen Organic Elements stamp set comes with so many fun little abstract shapes, so I decided to pick two that in combination, look like a little half sun.

Before getting inky, I grabbed a pencil and ruler to sketch out some evenly-spaced diagonal lines on my plain white card panel. These served as my spacing guides as I stamped my way across, alternating colors, all the way until the panel was full. Color-wise, I used Pinkfresh Studio inks in Coral Reef, Candy Violet and Raspberry Bliss.

With my background complete, it was time for the sentiment. The Happy Birthday hot foil stamp from the Essentials by Ellen line is a lovely big scripty one, and once I foiled, cut it out with the coordinating die, and placed it on my sunshine panel, the card really didn’t need much else! I popped the background panel and Happy Birthday die cut up on foam tape, then finished with a few bits of bling in the form of sparkling clear sequins.
