Happy Birthday To You!

Hi friends,

Sometimes less is more! I love everything about this clean and simple card. The Fall colors, the simple layout, and the Dew Drops to finish it off are just perfect!

The flower stamp is a very old stamp from Hero Arts. Don’t forget to look through your older stamps and show them some love now and then. 😉 Any simple flower stamp you have will work on a card like this. This Real Poppy stamp from Heart Arts would be pretty on this type of card.

I colored directly onto my stamp with water-based Tombow Dual Brush Markers to ink up my stamp. Any brand of water-based markers will work – but make sure they are water-based. You can also use your die ink cubes to apply color to your stamp.

I stamped my flower twice on white card stock, re-inking the stamp before stamping each flower. I stamped my sentiment onto the card stock, using the same green marker to ink up my stamp. (I’ve had this birthday stamp in my craft room a long time 🙂 Use your favorite birthday sentiment stamp.) I layered the stamped panel to matching orange card stock and attached it to a white card. Then I added 3 green Dew Drops to finish the card.

This is my favorite adhesive for card making (refills are here). For adding small embellishments like the Dew Drops, I like this glue that dries clear.

Of course this card can be made in any color. It’s such a simple layout, but makes a beautiful card!
