I just love how this card turned out! I needed a birthday card for someone whose birthday is on Christmas, so I decided to combine both occasions but use bright, rather than holiday, colors. Between the bright colors and the whimsical stamp set, it created pure holiday magic quickly and easily! I used 2 of our new 2022-2024 In Colors, which added a touch of cheer to the whimsical nature of this card.
