Happy Birthday

Good morning folks

February is a very busy month for teenage male birthdays. Now these are not my favourite cards to make so tend to be very boring (to me). In order to make them more interesting (for me) I decided to paper piece this stamp from Woodware -
I paper pieced the design with papers from First Edition's Travel Notes.
I have also used - 
  • Woodware's huge Happy Birthday
  • Travel notes paper pad from First Edition
  • matt black card and Kraft card from Crafter's Companion
  • canvas embossing folder from Crafter's Companion's textures range
  • white Spectrum Noir pencil
  • walnut stain and tea dye distress inks
  • Spellbinder's 5x7 matting basics A

A close up of the embossing.

Very simple but I like the effect.

Thank you for stopping by



  1. These Woodware stamps are perfect for that age group, I find the 18th and 21st useful as well. Great colours on this one Lesley.
