Brush Stroke Messages Birthday Wishes

This card was inspired by a card by Nina-Marie Trapani.  It was quick and easy to make using Simon Says Stamp Brush Stroke Messages.  I used a single brush stroke stamp and varied the lengths and colors stamped onto a rectangle of Neena Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock.

 

The sentiment from Clearly Besotted’s It’s Your Birthday was stamped with two different colors from the palette and the third color was used to stamp a small balloon from Simon Says Stamp Big Birthday Wishes.

Once the stamping was complete it was die cut suing the largest Lawn Fawn Small Stitched Stackable Rectangle.  I went through my scraps of paper and found a matching red cardstock, which was cut 1/8” larger than the die cut panel and adhered to the back with Kokuyo Dotliner Adhesive.  A rectangle of Darice Sticky Back Foam was die cut with the same rectangle die and adhered to the back of focal image with Tombo Mono Multi Glue.

I pulled out some DF Craft Thread in an Orange/Red and Yellow and wrapped it a couple of time around the top of the focal image and adhered the loose ends to the back with scotch tape.  I used some additional thread to tie a bow.

A side 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.  A bright and colorful masculine card.
