Bill's Birthday Card

Hello Stamping Friends:

My card today was made for my Son In Law, he is the last birthday for this year. In the last two months there has been at least 6 birthdays. This is causing a lot of havoc with my weight watchers. The scale seems to be going the wrong direction.

Anyway, I also used this card for the Late Night Stampers Challenge this week.

Here is how I made this card.

1. My card base is Dusty Durango and I cut my piece 5 x 10" scored it at 5".

2. I used the Textured jumbo wheel for the background using Dusty Durango ink.

3. I inked up the Medallion Background stamp in Dusty Durango and stamped it in the centre of the card. Then sponged the edges with Dusty Durango.

4. I cut a circle from Chocolate Chip and layered the colored image from For Father on it and the adhered it to the centre of the Medallion.

5. I stamped the sentiment from Party Hearty with Dusty Durango and punched it out with the Modern Label punch and sponged the edges with Dusty Durango. I layered this on top of a punch out from the Designer Label punch and using my paper piercer put holes around the top and bottom edge. I added two vintage brads to the ends of the label punches and adhered it to the card with dimensionals.


Stamps: Party Hearty, Medallion Background stamp, Textured Jumbo Wheel

Ink: Dusty Durango

Paper: Dusty Durango, Chocolate Chip and White.

I love what you did with this card. I especially love how you used the Medallion as a frame more so. I am sure your son-in-law will be impressed.
