The December My Monthly Hero kit is jam-packed with stamps and supplies for creating cards for all kinds of celebrations! There are so many wonderful items included in the kit, it’s hard to decide which ones to use first! Ultimately, I decided to make a birthday card using stamps and dies from the monthly kit.

First, I selected five of my favorite stamps and stamped them repeatedly across a white panel with Intense Black ink. I used the matching dies to cut masks for each of the images and then inked over each image with Butter Bar, Green Hills, Tide Pool, Bubble Gum or Mint Julep ink. I secured the panel to a white card base with foam tape.

Next, I heat embossed two birthday sentiments from the monthly kit onto a black tag, threaded the tag with black twine, and added it to the card with foam tape.  I also inked, stamped and die cut a gift box and piece of cake with a candle.  I added both images to the sentiment tag with foam tape and finished the card with a pair of clear gems.
