Ombre Inspired Birthday Card

(inspired by this one by Julie Ebersole)

I like the masculine feel to this card.

I cut the sentiment out of White Daisy cardstock using the Cricut Artbooking cartridge, then sponged Pear and Lagoon ink over top, blending where the two colours met in the middle.  I then pressed the inked pieces into my Versamark ink pad, sprinkled clear embossing powder over top and heat set it.

I used black ink and Distressed Backgrounds stamp on the bottom of the card.

The stars were punched, and then I used my metallic silver marker to draw the stitch lines on them, and used 3D foam tape to pop them up.

The only other notable is the green dots.  I used clear sparkles and inked them with Pear pigment ink, which I covered in clear embossing powder and heat set.

Happy creating!  :)

I love how the "happy birthday" turned out - it's so cool looking with the black and white. And the drawn-in stitching is great - I love this card!
