Happy Birthday ...

It is my brother's birthday this weekend and this is one of the cards I've made that I may send to him ... I might try and make another one this evening to see if I can come up with something better.  As he doesn't check my blog I'm pretty safe sharing it!

I have a thing at the moment about using negative die cutting and tonight's card is no exception. Here it is:

I couldn't capture the true colour of the inks I used as they are a lot bluer in real life and more vibrant.

I used:

Distress Inks - Salty Ocean, Peacock Feathers, Tumbled glass and Festive Berries.
Clearly Besotted Geometric Style II stamp set
Lawn Fawn Milo's ABC Stamp set
Die-namics High Rise Alphabet Die Set

As I have used red, white and blue I am going to enter this week's colour challenge at "Less is More".



  1. Hi Elaine...this is a great CAS male card and clever that you stamped the paper behind the Happy aperture. I am sure your son will love it!

  2. Lovely use of your negative die. Stef x

  3. Brilliant card Elaine and isn't it ever so slightly annoying when family members never look at our blogs :/
    Big hugs
