Circle Sayings Birthday Card

Circle Sayings Birthday Card

Do you ever fall in love with a stamp set and keep on using it and using it? That’s me! I preordered Stampin’ Up!’s Circle Sayings Bundle in April and have been playing with it ever since. I’ve paired it with different fun folds and different Designer Series Papers. Find the bundle on page 17 of Stampin’ Up!’ 2023-2024 Annual Catalog. Receive a 10 percent discount when you purchase the stamp set and 2 3/8″ circle punch together. 

I love this stamp set because it contains all of the sentiments I use regularly. It pairs easily with different papers and designs. 

Today, I show you how to make a birthday card with a fun fold suing Circle Sayings and Bright & Beautiful 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper. (Fun fold inspired by Susan Campfield.)
