Happy Birthday
by Donna Sledzik

Good morning everyone!

Today I have a birthday card for for the guys. It's not very often I make a card that men would appreciate.

To create this card I took a piece of glossy paper and used Archival Ink to stamp the dot border across my paper.  I used a heat tool to completely dry the ink.

Once the ink was dry, I used blue distress inks to fill in the background.  The Archival Ink resists the dye based ink.

Once I was done inking the cardstock, I trimmed it and matted it on white and black cardstock.  Using foam tape I adhered this to a white card base.

I die cut the word happy from white cardstock and white heat embossed the word birthday on a black cardstock strip, then glued these to the card front.

To finish the card I added some Red Nuvo drops. Pretty simple card, right?  Think of all the color combinations that you can create!

Have a great day!
