Cheerful stamp pad challenge 95: a birthday card


It's time for Cheerful stamp pad challenge 95: a birthday card. Please click on the link to see the lovely crafting of the rest of the team and please join in our challenge.

For my design card I used the Stitchy Bear 'four iron' image kindly supplied by the sponsor, colouring with spectrum noir pens, cutting around and mounting on to a piece of golf paper. All papers used were from my offcuts box, the larger argyll pattern was from Guy's Life. The silver embossed strip is a snippet of some originally created with an embossing folder run through the eBosser.

This is my first design card for mid-month inspiration for Christmas cards all year round September challenge: keep it krafty. Please click on the link to see the lovely krafty designs of the rest of the team ... and we hope you will join in our challenge with your krafty Christmas creations here.

The background paper is from Bazzill Basics 'timeless' collection. I stamped trees on to kraft paper using stamps from Clearly Besotted 'modern Christmas' collection. The sentiment is also from that collection, stamped on to a snippet of 'timeless' paper. The burlap flowers were from Poundland with gem centres added.
