Happy Birthday Chalkboard

Today is my hubby's birthday so I'm here to share the card I made for him using the new stamp set - Another Great Year from the Occasions Catalog.

Isn't this card fun!? I used the new Hardwood Background stamp to created the wood frame...stamped in White Craft onto Coastal Cabana and then cut into strips and sponged the edges in Crumb Cake. For added stability, each strip was glued onto strips of light weight chip board. The added thickness will insure that the legs stand up as well as creates a nice frame for the blackboard. I even created a stick of "chalk" out of tightly rolled Whisper White card stock.

After embossing the birthday banner image in white on Basic Black, I felt it needed some color and extra detail so I stamped it again in Black Stazon onto the fun new Sweet Sorbet DSP...which will be available during Sale-a-Bration, and did some paper piecing. Another one of the prints was used in the little banner created with Pennant Parade and the coordinating Petite Pennant Punch. The Natural Chevron Ribbon also used to create the banner is new as well and available in from the Occasions Catalog.

Thanks for visiting today!
