Happy Joyful Birthday!

Happy Joyful Birthday!
I’ve been wanting to use the Postage Stamps Nestabilities die with the large collage image from the Postage Due stamp set for a long time, and this week’s SCS sketch (SC399) was just perfect. It couldn’t have been more timely, because my husband’s birthday was coming up and I hadn’t made his (bicycle) birthday card yet!

I stamped the image with VersaMark ink while the Very Vanilla card stock was still inside the die, then heat embossed with Early Espresso EP. Afterwards I placed the paper back inside the die and sponged Crumb Cake and More Mustard ink over the entire surface. I also spritzed on some red and blue ink to tie in with the Fan Fair DSP background. The birthday sentiment was embossed on a Lots of Tags die cut that was embellished with linen thread.

Thanks for stopping by!
