Fireworks Birthday Card

Happy Saturday! Hope you are having a wonderful weekend so far. We’re having beautiful weather here in Marina del Rey. I enjoyed swimming at the pool under the sun. It felt like summer in the first week of March.


Today I’d like to share a one-layer card I created to enter in the CAS-ual Fridays #92 challenge. This week’s challenge is to use stamps to make a background on a CAS creation. I needed a celebration card to give someone, so I ended up with a fireworks greeting card.


For the focal point of the card which is fireworks, I stamped several images from the Funky Florals stamp set and the Everyday Sayings stamp set. Although they are originally floral stamps, they worked perfectly to create a fireworks image. What versatile stamps! Aren’t they?

FYI, this week’s cue card from CASology Week 33 is a circle, so I managed to make the focal image circular using a masking technique. I love the way my firework-themed card turned out. It’s so colorful and festive! I think this card also gives us a refreshing spring and summer delight. What do you think?

I hope you enjoyed my card, and you find a little bit of inspiration. Thanks for stopping by my blog. Have a great weekend!

About May Park

Hello! My name is May Sukyong Park. I was born and raised in South Korea. I now live in beautiful Southern California with my wonderful husband and two adorable cats. I had not enjoyed any arts and crafts until I was first introduced to stamping by my friend in 2010. Then I started scrapbooking, and slowly moved in to making cards. It became my biggest hobby where I have found my passion when I started my blog in 2012. I love to create clean and simple cards based on creative designs and unusual ideas. I hope you enjoy your stay on my blog and get some inspiration.


  1. Love your idea to use stamps and form a circle! It works well and is bright as well. Lovely.

  20. Such a great focal point you created with the center of a flower! Interesting that it’s a flower stamp, that looks like a firework, but totally looks like a flower when you cluster it together tightly like that! My head is spinning : ) Thanks so much for joining the CASual Fridays Challenge!

  21. What a clever use of those floral stamps! Great choice of bright and cheerful colors, and I love how you clustered the images to make a focal point. Thanks for sharing this with us at CASE Study!

  22. May, thanks for your sweet comment on my blog. This card is stunning. The end result looked simple (neat and crisp too) but I knew how much it took your time and creative energy to make this out. Keep my fingers crossed for you on your journey to the challenges.
