Record Birthday

Following is a birthday card for my brother, who is turning 61. This is not a record birthday, but I chose records and music for his card. This is using colors and stamps for the current Paper Smooches challenge.

The main stamp set used is Be Boppin from Paper Smooches. The words “happy birthday” are from SU Paper Pumpkin, and the snare drum is a Paper Trey Ink stamp. The record from the front is a MFT die. All paper is SU. The inks are various colors from GKD, Memento, and Lawn Fawn.

I chose the snare drum as my brother played a drum in high school and continues to play to this day. He listened to a lot of records, so the records fit. He used to sing so I added the notes. Being an artist, paint and drawing, the various colors work well. I always love finding an idea that fits the personality of the recipient.

This card will also be entered in the Sweet Stampin Challenge Blog: http://sweetstampinchallengeblog.blogspot.com/2020/02/birthday-boys.html

  2. All those bright colors and the design elements that are for your brother is very cool. Like the song says, “Don”t blink”. High School was just like yesterday, was it not?
