Back to Birthday!

Happy Monday everyone!  So back to birthday cards as May is a busy birthday month.  In fact, I have two friends with the same birthday today!  I’m only sharing one of the cards now and the other on Saturday. 😉  My friend loves her cat, so I thought it was the perfect time to break out a NBUS set and make this CAS birthday card.



Took a wonky stitched rectangle panel die cut from Neenah cardstock and stamped the image with Memento black ink.  Masked the image, then die cut a reverse oval mask from masking paper.  Adhered the oval mask into place and ink blended Shaded Lilac distress ink with a mini blending tool.  Removed the masks and coloured the image with Copics.  Having destashed a lot of my coloured cardstock, the sentiment was white heat embossed on a white strip and coloured with Wilted Violet distress ink.



Mounted the panel with foam adhesive on a white top folding card base.  Popped up the sentiment strip also with foam adhesive since it didn’t need to be mailed.  Added sone clear sequins and clear shimmer to finish.



I’m meeting up with my friend for a birthday lunch, so I’m hoping she doesn’t see this post beforehand. 😉  Thank you for stopping by.  Have a fabulous week!

  4. It is amazing that you incorporated various challenge theme/layout/colors into one card ! Love the adorable Newton and reverse oval masking background behind him. It looks simple but I would tell the whole making process wasn’t simple at all. Great design and well done 🙂 Thank you so much for playing with us at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge, Trina !
