It's Birthday Time


Sandy here with you today, filling in for Amy.  I found this image I had colored last year for a Copic class I was teaching and thought it was time to add it to a card.  I created my card base using Scalloped Rectangle Reflections Boutique dies.  I love that these dies are open ended because you can make about any size you want with them.  I started with a folded piece of card stock 5 3/4 x 6.  I only wanted the scallops on 3 sides, I think it makes a more masculine card.  I used the same dies to make the center scalloped strip on my card.  The image was die cut with a Silver Coved Rectangle die and backed with a matching Horizon Coved Rectangle Boutique die.  I added a Pocket Watch w/Angel Wing, another masculine die.  And the last step was the sentiment stamped onto a Tags 1 and backed with the same.

  2. A picture just does not do justice to that card. Having one of your other cards that you used this stamp on, I can say first hand that your coloring looks like a portrait in real life! I love using the pocket watch on a masculine birthday cards and set the time to the time of his birth to make it extra special. Love your fabulous card!
