Brush Stroke Birthday Messages I, II, III

This card was inspired by a card by Kristina Werner.  I made three separate cards with different color palettes.  I used two of the stamps from Simon Says Stamp Brush Stroke Messages used Altenew Inks to stamp and stack them in a horizontal column.  For each color used it was stamped full strength and again as second generation stamping for a lighter hue.

The sentiment was stamped on the darkest stroke.  Once the stamping was complete the panel was die cut using the largest Lawn Fawn Small Stitched Stackable Rectangle.  A complimentary rectangle was cut from scrap cardstock 1/8” larger and adhered to the back with Kokuyo Dotliner Adhesive.  Darice Sticky Back Foam was cut with the same rectangle die and adhered to the back of the focal image panel.

A top folding A2 cardbase was made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock and the  focal image was adhered to the front with Tombo Mono Multi Glue and the card was done.

I really like the graphic element to this card and create it another two time in different color palettes.
