Pastel Birthday Card

Hello crafty friends! Since I'm usually all over the place with different stamps and dies on one single card, I challenged myself to only use one set for this card .

I am using the Wplus9 Papel Picado stamps and dies. At first glance, it might not be immediately clear how to use them best. But I found that they work especially well then used with good color combinations or as a background.

This card is a birthday card for a guy, so I stayed away from everything that sparkles or could be considered female colors. And the blue with the light orange and yellow has a wonderful retro feel that I like.

The only indulgence that I allowed myself on this card was the pattern paper that peeks out behind the front of the card.

Have a wonderful weekend, and thanks for stopping by or leaving a comment!
