Seize the Birthday

I have not played with Seize The Birthday in a long while.  Here's my entry for their current CAS challenge:

Supplies and notes:
  • This card exists because I was busting out some baby cards (not my fave type of card*), and as I was making a window-card for an expectant mother, I had a light-bulb moment: I thought, "Hey, I want to play with my new PTI stamp set!  Not  baby paper!"  So that's what I did.
    • *I am actually liking baby cards better now that I've made three of the seven I need... I grabbed all my baby-ish stuff and it is actually more fun than it was when I started.
  • Anyway, for this card, I used a Studio G card base
  • Stamps are all Papertrey Ink Winter Woods
  • The cardinal was stamped first with Color Box Archival in Blossom, then the details and sentiment were stamped with MementoLuxe in Tuxedo Black
  • The branches were stamped with Crystal ink in Chocolate Brown and Moss Green
Cute, huh?  It's CAS, but it also has extra fun inside!  I will definitely be making more like this!


  1. CAS on the front, more detailed on the inside, how clever and beautiful!

  2. Clever CAS design! Beautiful stamping on the inside of the card!
