Masculine Birthday Card

Jan 06, 2022 Jessica Frost-Ballas

Good morning and Happy 2022!  Jess here with my first card for the year!  I'm creating a card for the current Stay Crafty with Hero challenge: Circles and also stocking up on my birthday cards for the year!

To start I blended Cornflower, Navy, and Intens-ified Black Ink onto a panel of Periwinkle Cardstock using blending brushes.  I applied the darkest color to my top left corner and faded out to the cardstock color by the bottom right.  Then I used my MISTI to stamp the Circle Pattern Bold Prints cling stamp onto the panel with Contour Ink for a tone on tone design.

Next I die-cut the Happy Birthday die from the Birthday Stamp & Cut XL using the same Periwinkle Cardstock.  I die-cut three and adhered them together with Liquid Precision Glue.  Then I swiped my Embossing & Watermark Ink over the bottom of the die-cut and heat-embossed it with Brass Embossing Powder for a little metallic accent!  Finally I stamped the rest of the sentiment from Birthday Stamp & Cut XL onto Nautical Cardstock with Embossing & Watermark Ink and heat-embossed it with the same Brass Embossing Powder.  I trimmed it down to a thin label and then adhered both to my card panel.  You could easily change out the colors of cardstock and ink and the sentiment label to create a ton of different looks and I hope this gives you some inspiration for our current challenge!

Don't forget to play along with the Stay Crafty with Hero challenge for a chance to win a $50 gift card to the Hero Arts store!  You've got about a week to enter!!

Thanks so much for stopping by and have an amazing day!
