A magic birthday card featuring QKR Stampede digital Magic stamps

Magic card featuring QKR Stampede digital stamp, by Paperesse.

I whipped this card up for a friend's birthday recently and although my friend is a woman, I do think these stamps would work equally well for a guy. Notice the plural there – stamps? That's because you really need two stamps to get this card's full magical effect. You have the stamp for the card front – shown above – and then you have this inside one below:

The front of the card uses QKR Stampede Magic Card digital stamp, while the inside uses the One Year Older stamp.

My paper is of the magazine freebie variety. I've framed my little magician with my favorite Toga Polaroid die. I've used this die so much that if you google Toga Polaroid Die, some of my cards come up. It just seems to make whatever I use it on look good, be it cut from wood on this get well card or colorfully decorated on this Halloween card.

Star embellishments mimic the paper design.
