Happy Unbirthday!

Sweeties, what’s about an un-birthday? Isn’t that a great idea? I need to admit it, it wasn’t mine, it’s from France Papillon at Stampotique designers challenge.


I used Β white card stock and I coloured it with sand yellow ecoline and bistre. I distressed the edge and made it pop with chalk edger (metallic copper).

I used France’s design cube #1 (#10012) with orange archival ink to add some more texture.

I stamped Daniel’s Cup of fun certainty (#6177) with memento rich cocoa, I coloured it to make it a cup of blueberry fun… I stitched a piece of canvas fringe under my cup cake. I used a stencil and black gel pen to write my wishes. And tadaah:

I am sharing my card with Stampotique designers’ challenge SDC 183.

    Fantastic card, but I still don’t know what an un-birthday is, LOL! Is it just a card you send someone when it is NOT their birthday, i.e 364 days of the year?

    I love an un-birthday and an un-Christmas Day too! This has a real celebratory feel to it with that gorgeous background. I can never resist a cupcake, so a Stampotique one is perfection. Great card.
