Casual Fridays birthday card Frankly Stamp Set

Happy Birthday to CAS-ual Fridays!  CAS-ual Fridays has been a very popular challenge blog for quite sometime and one year ago, they opened their own stamp line. Soooo….are you ready for some serious fun and celebrating?

Guess what?   ALL the presents are for YOU!

If you've never heard of CAS-ual Fridays stamps, well you are in for a treat!

CAS-ual Fridays Stamps are created with Clean And Simple in mind, (hence the CAS in our name) but will delight any stamper's style. Our clear photopolymer stamps just love ink and are made in the USA!  Our new line of Fri-Dies are also made in the USA and will coordinate with lots of our stamp sets for even more fun! We have new designs nearly every month, and the fabulous Ink Squad delivers continuous inspiration throughout the month for your oohing and aahing pleasure. Visit us at


I said the presents were for YOU!  So here's a run-down:


When I was thinking about what kind of card I would make for CAS-ual Friday's birthday, I knew that I would make…well, a birthday card!

The Calm and Gentle stamp set has this fun stamp that is meant to be stamped as tree leaves, but I saw confetti.  And with the recent trend of Gradient Stamping, I thought it would be fun to use it for confetti!  Add that to the top layer cut at an angle, a few sequins and a strip of glimmer paper and you've got a card that is too cool for school, my friends!
