Birthday Blitz! - Four Square

This week, my family celebrates two birthdays and it's also the week of George Washington's birthday so I thought it would be fun to commemorate the week with BIRTHDAY CARDS! We all can use ideas for those special occasions, so let's get started.

My first card uses the Four Square stamp set and is simple to make. It's generic enough that it would be perfect for a lot of people, but reminds me most of teenage boys with the grungy graphic and bright colors. This design could also be repeated using more adult masculine colors (think darker blues and greens) or more feminine with shades of pink.
The red polka dots are stamped using the square background stamp from the For All You Do stamp set, and the blue happy birthday image is from the Four Square set. Beyond that, the impact from this card comes from the plethora of layers.
A really cool side note about the Four Square set is that it can be yours free with any $50 purchase from me. Yes, you read that's one of the bonus Sale-a-bration sets this years. It comes with four square greetings, including the birthday one above. They are all terrific and very versatile.
