Make It Monday # 31 - Make a Background


Today i have a card i made for PTI's Make It Monday. This is a birthday card for a coworker who's birthday is this week. The MIM challenge is to use a regular stamp as a background. I used 2 stamp's from the same set.

I started with a purple pattern paper and stamped the background with purple ink. Then i punched a border along the bottom edge. Next i punched some holes at the top left corner and along the right side. I also distressed the edges with ink.

Next i cut a die shape from card stock and stamped a border in the shape. In a very light purple i stamped Happy Birthday. Next i used PTI's new Bloom Builders #3. I added a white button to the middle and adhered it to the top corner of the die cut. Then i added a few rhinestone and last adhered this to the card with pop up dots.

Thanks for stopping by!!
