Patterned Boy Birthday
Just Add Ink and I figured a birthday card would be a great way to use the colors. I have a tendency to stamp with more feminine colors, so combo (Tangerine Tango, Marina Mist, Sahara Sand, and Early Espresso) was a great way to get me to make some boy birthday cards that my mom can use. I started with the Tangerine card base and textured it with the Chevron Textured Impressions folder. I stamped my panel with the Patterned Party set and then speckled it with an Early Espresso Stampin' Write Marker and my color spritzer. I like the speckled look and it helps fill in some of the white space. I layered that panel onto Marina Mist and Early Espresso and then tied it all together with some Early Espresso stitched grosgrain. I stamped the "happy birthday" from the Happiest Birthday Wishes set and then cut it into a banner shape by using a square punch at an angle. Now I've got a stack of boy cards, next up for my mom will be some girl cards.
