Birthday wishes to you!

Hello again!

Today I have been in a totally crafting mood, hence I thought to post another card I created, this time using my new MFT Snow Drifts Cover-up die. This is the first time I use this die and I have to admit… I love it! The image I used is part of Newton’s Nook Designs – Newton’s Christmas Cuddles stamp set which you have seen me using again and again. (Don’t you feel happy when you buy something that you want to use all the time?!). Here is my second card for today…hope you like it as much as I do!

Quick Instructions:

I created the background swiping my white cardstock panel over Distress inks that I sprayed with water. Then I heat set it and dabbed it over the inks again a few times ,drying the panel after each dabbing. After that I die cut the wavy panel 3 times. Once out of white card stock, then out of black cardstock and the last time I die cut the background I created before. I white heat embossed the sentiment on the right black cut out piece. Next I stamped the image on white cardstock and colored it using watercolors. Once the image dried I added the stripes with a gray fineliner and fussy cut it. I stuck everything on my cardbase and I added two fine stipes of white cardstock above and below it to reduce the gap on the top and bottom edge of my card. And my card was ready!
