Don’t Distress Over Your Birthday

Posted on

I created one more card for the CAS-ual Fridays Birthday Bash CFC99 Challenge. This one would be a little more appropriate to send to someone Michelle who is the owner and creative genius over at CAS-ual Friday Stamps.

Michelle it turning 45 and to celebrate she is spreading the love by giving participants a chance to win a $45 gift certificate to her stamp store. I would love to win this time! I already know which sets I would choose if I won…Woot Woot, Rad and WTF!

Anyway here is my card:

Clean and Simple Birthday Card

First I stamped my sentiment in Versamark ink and then clear embossed it. Then I sponged on two colors of Tim Holtz Distress ink, Worn Lipstick and Spiced Marlmalade. Finally I splattered the sentiment paper with water, let it dry and then die cut my shape.

The background of the card is done with a patterned stamp that I clear embossed as well. A little bit of Baker’s Twine and “Bam” it’s your birthday!

Happy Stamping,

Paper crafting is my Yoga. It takes my mind off any stress that I might have at the time. My daughter loves to get involved in my projects too and it is a great way to connect with her. Sixteen years ago I began scrapbooking but, my new true love is card making!
