Christmas has been and gone and so has New Years so it is back in to the swing of regular crafting for me. I wanted to make a birthday card with a bit of a difference. I used one of Sarah’s journalling cards as my patterned paper base to make a card with a bit more of a message than just happy birthday.
I started with the Sarah Hurley wood grain background texture stamp which you can find here. I used this to add a surround to the edge of a card blank so that it was not plan around the edges of my journalling card.
I die cut a ticket from some Sarah Hurley note paper and stamped a stamp from the Sarah Hurley sentiment stamp set that you can find here. I masked off the sentiment so that I just had the happy birthday part. I just used some washi tape for this.
I cut out some affirming and empowering words from one of Sara’s kits and inked up the edges of these and the ticked with walnut stain distress ink.
I adhered the journaling card down and then glued all the words and tickets down. I added some stars down also. This card is perfect for the person who got it – someone who does a lot of documenting and loves typewriters, as well as it being their birthday. I really love getting to use up supplies in lots of different ways!
