Winter Birthday Card


Hi, friends, it’s Chark today with a birthday card just for Winter. I used the Winter Cheer tag die (with the ornament top trimmed off) in white as a counterpoint to the colorful background. The background is a piece of acetate that I dripped alcohol inks onto and dabbed with a felt applicator. After it dried, I backed it with a white card to really show off the color.


I stamped the “happy” and die cut it and then used Raspberry Tart Stickles to make it sparkle. The “birthday” comes with the happy set of stamps and I just repeatedly stamped it with Picked Raspberry Distress Inks.

This came together quickly after the background was dry and I’m hoping all the color brings a little birthday fun to my sister-in-law.
