Stretch your Sentiment Stamps

Hi Folks! I always love personalizing cards when I can. The cards we make are one-of-a-kind, so we might as well play that feature up, right?  In this instance, I wanted the recipient of my card to sing "Happy Birthday" to herself, so I needed to stamp out the song lyrics. The HB2U stamp from CASual Fridays The Whole Shebang is an easy way to get most of the song on there : )

For the rest of the song, I picked out "happy," "birthday," and "deal" from the In the Cards set. Obviously, "deal" is not in the song, but "dear" is. So I inked up everything on "deal" except the bottom right line of the "L" and then drew in my own curve with a white gel pen on the top to make it into an "r". For the birthday girl's name, I just wrote it with a gel pen in a similar font as the other words. Not everything has to be stamped! Sometimes it's easier to just write it yourself : )

This card is over at the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps blog today if you'd like additional information.
Thanks for looking!

  4. Now that's what I call using stamps to their full! I love personalized cards, and I'm sure that Tessa will too. This is very sweet. Love this very fun card! Bev
