If you are not on Facebook or under the age of 40, you might not know that HBD stands for Happy Birthday! I thought it would be cute on a card front. I think I made sure that the receiver will understand the message I wrote with the Lined Alphabet stamp set.

Design Notes for Lined Alphabet HBD:

This card went together pretty quickly. Instead of starting with the Designer Paper, I started with the card stock color. Not necessarily a good idea, but I made it work. Garden Impressions is one of those paper stacks that you think you would not be able to use for a masculine card. But, don’t rule it out. The reverse side of most of the beautiful, flower filled papers has great designs. They can be used for anyone! Here’s a close up of the paper.

To create the banner, I used the Lined Alphabet stamps, I was going to color in the letters but opted not to. Maybe next time. I used the dot from the exclamation point to create the asterisk. Do you know where the “To You” came from? I think it’s pretty unexpected. It’s part of one of the sentiments in the Flourishing Phrases stamp set. I just used a Bermuda Bay Stampin’ Write Marker to add color to the part I wanted to stamp.
