Happy Birthday



It never seems that I have enough birthday cards in my card box so I am always looking for gender neutral cards. I thought it would be fun to make a tie die looking card using the Frantic Stamper Bubble Border die.  I took four different distress inks and inked up a piece of white card stock.  I then die cut the border die three different times.  To make it easier to have the die cut adhered to the card base I attached a double sided adhesive to the card stock before die cutting. This made adhering them super easy!

The card was finished off by a black strip of card stock and a stamped birthday sentiment.   Love that this could be used for a guy or girl!

You are such a pro when it comes to masculine birthday cards. This is no exception!

Such a fun card, Lynn, but no challenge? How about Happy Little Stampers CAS challenge - use dies or punches?

This is amazing. And, you just sparked an idea for me with another die I have. Love how you have lined up all those die cuts and how your colors are so perfectly blended.
