Label Love birthday card with Gorgeous Grunge

IMG_0071edit

I love simple cards, and this is quite possibly one the simplest I have ever made.

First, trim A4 Whisper White card stock in half, and fold in half to create a card base (Measurements are 14.8cm, by 10.5cm)

Cut Bermuda Bay cardstock to 14.3 x 10 cm, then a third layer of Whiper white at 13.8 x 9.5 cm

Round all corners with the Project Life Corner Punch.

Stamp the smallest layer (Whisper White) with Gorgeous Grunge in Smoky Slate, and Tangerine Tango (I stamped each colour 2 or 3 times)

Stamp the Happy Birthday stamp from the Label Love collectioin onto spare Whisper White cardstock in Bermuda Bay and punch out using the Artisan Label punch.

Build the cards centring each layer on top of the other, using Stampin’ Dimensionals, then add the Happy Birthday label on top dimensionals slightly off centre.

Card is done!

I also made the same card using the same base (Whisper White and Bermuda Bay) but supplemented the other colours with Island Indigo.  Here are the 2 side by side…

IMG_0070editWhat do you think?  Do you have a favourite?  I think adding the Island Indigo gives this card a more masculine feel, and I love that!
