Homemade Birthday Card

Making Birthday CardsThis simple homemade birthday card uses just half a sheet of card stock, a budget-friendly approach to making handmade cards.

I took a scratch sheet of paper and cut out a square from it, then laid it over the front of my card.  I sponged Crumb Cake ink along the edge of a Post-It note that I had torn along the edge to give the appearance of landscape/snow, repeating that a few times.

I then used the same Post-It notes to mask while I stamped the trees (from Lovely as a Tree) on the horizon in Garden Green ink.  I overstamped the tree in the foreground using the Illuminate Glimmer Watermark Stampin' Pad from the Holiday Catalog to give it some shimmer, but it's hard to see in the picture (which is rather bright, sorry).

I added some color to the sky by sponging about four different ink colors on it (masking the landscape first).

I used a Stampin' Write Marker in Garden Green to color in the portion of the greeting on the stamp that I wanted, which is from Perfect Punches.
