Concord & 9th are celebrating their first birthday so I used one of their stamp sets to create a birthday card for them. The stamp set is called Eat Cake & Celebrate. I am entering this card in the Mod Squad Blog Challenge in which one is to use a bordered sentiment but no flowers on the card.
First in the approximate center of my white panel I stamped the sentiment. First in multi-colors by using a Kalaidacolor rainbow dye ink pad called Birthstone. I then re-stamped over it with black so that it appeared to be a shadow of multi-colors.
My next step was to to take a ruler and a black Bic Mark-it pen and draw lines above and below to create a border. I then masked off the sentiment with Post-It notes and proceeded to stamp the stacked birthday cakes and sprinkle of stars patterns with the multi-colors ink pad.
Once I had my panel stamped I layered it to black card stock before adding it to the base card of light turquoise card stock.
This was a pretty easy way to create a colorful birthday card. I hope Concord & 9th have many more birthdays in their future.
Thanks for visiting and I love all the comments you leave.
