Happy Birthday

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s February Blog Hop! This is a great time of year to build your stash of handmade birthday cards, so we are sharing birthday-themed projects with you today. We are excited to share our creations and hope you love them! After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.
Today’s card is shown with two layouts. I originally intended it to be as an even layered card, 2nd picture, but as I was lining it all up I accidentally laid the top panel to the side and really liked the look of it. I went back and forth, took pictures of it both ways, but settled on the first one. This card will be in the mail soon to my step dad whose birthday is next week.
Paper: Assorted note cards Memories and More, Patterned Party DSP, Misty Moonlight cardstock
Stamp Set: Biggest Wish
Ink: Misty Moonlight, Pool Party, Granny Apple Green, Daffodil Delight
Other: Stamparatus
I was able to line up my BIRTHDAY stamp so cleanly by using the step technique on the Stamparatus. By moving the plate down one hinge at a time it lines the image up perfectly. The image below shows how it works.
Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you’ll hop along to the next stop on the blog hop, Jan Dufour at Stamp Me Silly. There’s lots of inspiration to be found in this group – and you don’t want to miss it!
