Retiring Stamp Set Sneak Peek #5

Isn't this card perfect for a young boy or teenager's birthday??  I found it while CASEing Mary Fish's Stampin Pretty blog - I have gotten soooo many ideas from her lately to use for my retiring stamp sets!!  Speaking of which, this retiring set, Party this Way (found on page 67 of the Idea Book & Catalog) is another favorite of mine! 

Party This Way Stamp Set - by Stampin' Up!

Party this Way   wood-mount   118744   $15.95
Party this Way   clear-mount   120609   $11.95

For this simple card, we started with a Whisper White card base, layered on the Island Indigo patterned paper from the Summer Smooches DSP (available in the new annual catalog on June 1).  We stamped the Happy Birthday and Party this Way in black Stazon ink and the balloons in Tangerine Tango ink.  We used our handy paper snips to cut out the balloons and Party this Way sign.  We added the thin strip of Basic Black card stock and a 5/8" Neutral (silver) brad to keep that masculine feel.  The brads (which also come in Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla and Whisper White) are also retiring on May 31 (or sooner, while supplies last).

Hope you enjoyed this fun card!
