A Birthday Card for someone Special

Hello My Crafty Blog Friends

How is your week going?  The work is still continuing on the drive the patio is now included in the plan and changing the wall and the fence. It is a very big job. We are having it done at the same time as our neighbours it should look very smart when it is finished. I will post some pictures when it is finished.

A few weeks ago I made a card for a special friend. He should have seen the card by now so it should be okay to post.


I did start by creating the image. I made the mats and layers match the colours I had used. The ribbons were in my stash. 


I used the circle media plate, that John Lockwood uses, with my Tim Holtz stamping platform. I used two shades of Distress ink on the plate that I spread out with a brayer. Then I used the platform to place the stamps. I must say the stamping platform has transformed my stamping. It is so easy to set something up and to stamp several of them very quickly. I have made quite a few Christmas cards like this recently. 


I tried two different types of paper water colour card and a smooth stamping card. I did like both results I decided to use the one on the water colour card. I will be making a card with the other image. 


I was very pleased with how this card turned out. I will be using these stamps again. 

Happy Crafting
