Oxide Ink Blended Happy Birthday

Lately I’ve been on a kick of ink blending with the Distress Oxide Inks.  They give such a beautiful, smooth blend.  I decided to keep this card very simple.  I took a rectangle of Neena Solar White 80# Cardstock and put some Post-it Tape on an angle at the bottom third of the rectangle.  I then ink blended Distress Oxide inks Salty Ocean, Peacock Feathers, and Broken China at the bottom.  I used the Simon Says Stamp Bundle of Stitched Shapes Rectangle to die cut the panel.  Darice Sticky Back Foam was cut 1/8” smaller and adhered to the back.

For the sentiment I ink blended a scrap of white cardstock with the same inks and die cut it with the Mama Elephant Birthday Script Die.  I adhered it directly to the card base on the angle of the ink blending with Ranger Multi Medium Matte.  I used the Distress Oxide Salty Ocean to stamp the word “HAPPY” from Lawn Fawn’s Happy Happy Happy stamp set.  Sequins from Neat & Tangled Starry Night and Doodlebug Designs Swimming Pool where scatter around the sentiment with Ranger Multi Medium Matte.

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