This year I'm going to try to be a bit better about birthday cards. I'm absolute rubbish. And Facebook made it easier to remember but I left Facebook last year so I'm right back to not.
Carving a cute new stamp seemed as good a place to start as any, no?
And this card set ensures at least four people will get cards this year. Which, sadly, will be a huge improvement.
All the cards were made the same way:
1. Stamp image on white card stock using black Staz-On ink
2. Stamp image on post it note. Cut out and use as a mask to protect the nice clean cake image.
3. Dab Ranger Distress Ink through 'stencil' with a foam cosmetic sponge - in this case the stencil was some old fancy cut out paper... KI Memories I think. Laser cut cardstock was quite a thing a few years back. Note: On the top card, I stamped a Hero Arts French Script stamp with distress ink, let it dry and then stenciled over top.
4. Add a sentiment - these are Papertrey stamps on bits of Gelli Prints.
This one was a little different, same idea but with a number laser cut, no ombre effect and I stamped the sentiment right onto the card like a ribbon.
