Birthday Wishes

A birthday card for you today, a slight tangent from Christmas cards and thank you cards, but don’t worry I still have a lot more to do! This cutey is for a man and uses the BasicGrey Wassail papers from Sassy Crafts. I’ve coloured him in with Tim Holtz Distress inks and some 3D-glue on the nose (don’t think you can see that in the photo). To finish the card I used wire, ribbon and a crystal brad from my stash but Emma also stocks crystal brads.

Stamp – Whipper Snapper
Paper – BasicGrey Wassail
Ink – Versafine Onyx Black
Colouring – Tim Holtz Distress inks
Usual suspects – Trimmer; Scissors; Glue dots; Double-sided tape; Computer and printer
Other – Brads; Ribbon; 3D-glue; wire; Cuttlebug and tag die

    Wow Kim this is stunning. I love the simplicity of the layout. It all makes it look so striking. You will have to let me know what card you use when colouring with distress inks as my SU whisper white doesn’t like it. x
