Remember this post where I used kraft card stock to make a wedding card? Well, I also decided to use the same kraft card stock and stamp to make a birthday card.
This image seems to lend itself nicely to this embossing/coloring technique. I think it's a pretty old stamp (I got it second hand), so I'm not sure if it is still available.
My image was colored with ProMarkers, using a couple different shades of each color to add some depth.
The "Happy Birthday!" is a Fiskars stamp, and it was also heat-embossed.
At the bottom of my card I added a ribbon, secured with a brad, and some texture with a Darice border embossing folder.
I finished the inside of my card with a sentiment stamp by Woodware.
Our weather has turned gorgeous again. I'm trying to appreciate every minute of it, because I know the cold and snow is not that far off. We've been known to have blizzards in October in Minnesota. In fact, in 1991 there was a terrible blizzard on Halloween night. Here are a couple of images, which I found online, that show the results of that storm:
I do hope the weather is gorgeous wherever you are and that you don't have to deal with any blizzards this year.
Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--ever day.
