Dymo Birthday

Hi and welcome!  It's Freshly Made Sketch Challenge day and this week the very talented Cindy Lovell has a wonderful sketch which can be interpreted in so many ways:


How cool and trendy is that sketch??  


For my card, I immediately had the idea of using a die I'd bought a few months ago and not yet used.  I sponged Salty Ocean ink onto a white panel and adhered it using foam tape behind the cut-out.  It was then a simple matter of spelling Happy Birthday on my Dymo machine and sticking that on the card front and I was done!  For the record, I really, really want the Altenew set, Label Love, but until then I'll have to make do with the labeller :)



Thanks so much for visiting.  Check out the rest of the design team's fabulous inspiration!  I hope you can find some time to join us in the gallery.

Products used:

Ink:  Salty Ocean
Cardstock:  White
Accessories:  Confetti Circle die (SSS), Dymo labelling machine

Cheers
Karren

Not only is the sketch cool and trendy, this card is cool and trendy! I love everything about it! And I'm so jealous that your Dymo machine works. I bought one after I bought that stamp set because I wanted to make my own labels and it died a short, not-so-sweet death after the second time I used it.

This card is dynamic! I LOVE that shade of blue, and it's so brilliant behind the cutouts. The Dymo label is a brilliant idea, too. So much fabulous design, but so clean and fresh.
