Happy Birthday card

This was so fun to make!  Using Close to my Heart's Chantilly Cardmaking kit stamp set.

Cut out card shape from Art Philosophy with Black cardstock and then cut out matching shape (smaller than card) in White cardstock for front of card.

I first placed the stamps over white cardstock, stamp image down (no ink).  I then sprayed Cranberry and Slate water and re-inker mixed spray bottles over paper and stamps, at distance.

Remove stamps, wash off excess spray.  Dry paper with dryer.  Place stamps back on white area from where stamps were with image down.  Place acrylic block over stamps and ink with black, line up stamps in white area and ink.

Glue white cardstock image to card.

Made 2 rosette flowers from Slate cardstock and sprayed with Cranberry water spray bottle.  Used a trimmed down flair swirl from Mini-Medley Wooden Accent Set and colored them in black.  I then added more embelishments, Opague Licorise Gems and Silver Glitz Gel.

Do allow time for the papers to dry but do use heat to keep them from curling.

Happy crafting everyone!
