Happy Birthday Friend …

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

How are you this fine Thursday?  My wish for you is a marvelous day!

Today I am going to share with you, a birthday card that I made for a dear friend of mine who’s birthday is on Friday.  We have been friends since the 5th grade (and that’s all I’m going to say about that) lol.

My technique today is triple time.   Simply layer your 3 light colored cardstock together when stamping, then separate and mat.  I just love this technique, it’s easy and looks cool.

I have used the “Secret Garden” stamp set with the Crushed Curry ink.  When using the new ink pads … you can emboss, which I did with the clear embossing powder.   Then I colored the centers in with the Chocolate Chip marker.  I wanted to give my card a fall flair.

To continue with the fall theme, I choose to use the “Burlap Ribbon” … however in a very different way.  I cut the surged edge off and then pulled it apart.  The strings from the burlap ribbon add even more texture because it kinked.   I’ve seen this done before and always wanted to try it … what was I waiting for!
