Three Tim Holtz Birthday Cards
Disclaimer! I'll start off by saying this post has been sitting as a "Draft" in my "Publish" file for almost 2 years - and I don't know why! So yah, they're older stamp sets and maybe not so inspiring any more since they are so "last year" lol!! I truly have no idea why I didn't publish it -- but anyways, here goes...
Its birthday time around here and it's the time of year when it's "boy" birthdays for several weeks -- so I'm stressing about the masculine style birthday cards I have to make. Tim Holtz to the rescue, no one else does it better!
The first card displayed uses the cupcake from Tim's "Birthday Blueprint" set. I stamped the design onto a sheet from TH "Destinations" paper and then stamped the cupcake again onto some Basic Grey paper scraps. I cut away the cupcake and candle pieced it onto the background. Some strips of paper confetti and words from the stamp set were added to the layout with metal brackets and brads to complete the card.
Next, from the same TH stamp set, I followed the same technique using Authentique "Celebrate" 6x6 paper pad and layered it onto white, black, then Kraft cardstock. The metal "wish" sentiment is by "Momenta".
Here you can see where I popped up some of the paper pieces to add dimension. I also added Crystal Effects to the candle flame.
TFL, I'm so glad you stopped by! Have a Blessed Week!!
