Framed Birthday

Hi!  I'm taking advantage of the extra day in my weekend to do a bit of card-making for some of the challenges I don't often get time to enter.  This first card uses the colors from MFT Color Challenge and the sketch from CAS on Sunday.  This is my first time playing along with a challenge at MFT, but over the last several months, I've accumulated quite the collection of MFT stamps and dies, so I thought it was time :)

Unfortunately, I don't have any MFT colors so I've made do with the closest matches I could find.  I hope this is okay.


I started by die-cutting two pierced rectangle frames from some Schoolhouse Red and Old Olive cardstock.  I then interlinked them and adhered them to a white card base.

The word was die-cut four times and stacked, using some Soft Navy cardstock.  I painted over the top with some Wink of Stella and it wasn't completely dry when I took the photos, which is why it looks a bit patchy.  Impatient, much? :)


I really quite like the graphic and simple look to this card and I love the plain font of the sentiment - it makes a nice change from all the scripty fonts - although I love them too!

Thanks for visiting.



Products used:

Cardstock:  White, Soft Navy, Schoolhouse Red (SSS), Old Olive (SU)
Dies:  Happy Birthday die (MFT), Pierced Rectangle Frames (MFT)

Cheers
Karren
