I’ve had something of a card-making frenzy this weekend, so this is the first of many cards I’ll be posting this week!
To make this card, I first created the distress ink background with a blending tool on white cardstock, then mounted it on black glitter paper and trimmed it close. When blending the ink, I left a white section for my sentiment: ‘It’s not how old you are, but how you are old.’
I adhered this embellishment then started stamping around it in black ink. I chose balloons, candles and presents for a birthday vibe. I really like the monochrome with the splash of blue in the middle.
