Have I mentioned lately how much I love Memento's color range from yellow to dark orange? Oh, yeah. You can make cards like this for no reason other than you can:
To stamp these so perfectly takes a gridded acrylic block. I started with the dark orange (Morroco) and worked toward the yellow using the gridded acrylic block lines as guides. Fortunately, the word birthday is an inch and a half wide, so the birds' legs are exactly a half inch apart. To do this over a less precisely wide word, you could mark the spacing with a pencil and ruler and a little help from fifth-grade fractions, depending on how many images you want to stamp.
Or you could get all wacky and eyeball it.
I don't recommend eyeballing it, though. You will inevitably screw it up and use words that got your mouth washed out with soap in fifth grade.
Avoid making yourself swear whenever possible. Get out the ruler.
Have a lovely weekend, everyone!
