As the end of June officially begins the “Birthday Bash” in my family
(6 of us were born within 5 weeks), I am trying to get ahead and make some birthday cards now. I made this one for one of the men in my life. Sorry I don’t have a picture tutorial but I was in the creative moment, and I think it I easy enough to follow.
What I Used to Make this Card:
Kraft Cardstock Base
White Scrap covered with Tea Dyed Fabric (to see more about this fabric go here)
Adhesive Fabric Paper from DCWV, in Blue
Tim Holtz Stamp Sets; The Journey and Simple Sayings
Distress Ink in Walnut Stain
|The tea dyed fabric & the original|
First, I cut a piece of my tea-dyed fabric and glued it onto a scrap piece of white cardstock. This both showed the design of the fabric and made it easier for me to trim down. Then I embossed both the car and the truck in Micro Black, on Kraft cardstock and cut them out.
I embossed Happy Birthday in a mix of Micro Black and Siam Silver, just to give it a different look than plain black. I trimmed my fabric paper from DCWV; the tea dyed fabric (I rubbed the Walnut Stain Distress Ink around all of the sides), and the sentiment to fit on the card and just glued it all down.
I have to say I am pleased with the way the DCWV fabric paper brings everything together. I was concerned about the patterns, but I like them!
Thanks for popping by! Please take a look at the Globecraft & Piccolo store; there are some new releases!!
