One Big Happy Birthday

Talk about a fun card to make up!  I spied Gaynor Joyce making these up in a video and I just had to a have a go myself.  I love them!  But read on for a neat trick I can't wait to do on more cards...

The background is made by off stamping images in Crumb Cake and then getting a black marker to do the little dots to fill in the blank areas.  Comes up well, don't you think?

I couldn't decide between Merry Merlot and Night of Navy, so I made up one in each! 

The trick I was telling you about is to go around the stamped sentiment Happy Birthday (from the One for All stamp set) with the light Smoky Slate Blends pen - it gives the sentiment so much more presence on the card it's incredible.  I admit I was skeptical at first but wow, was I surprised.  Give it a go!

Would you like a video tutorial for this card?  Comment below and let me know!

Happy crafting,
