Happy Birthday


A little quite round here i know, its going to be for the next couple weeks! I have a research paper to get done and well i'm a procrastinator when it comes to writing! But today i'm popping in quick to share a masculine birthday card!

I started by pulling out a Basic Grey collection pack called Carte Postale. I found a cool journaling card and a few stickers that i liked. Then i stamped the skull from The Alley Way Stamps Wigwam set on some pattern paper in the collection. I cut out the horns from a brown pattern and added them to my skull. With a brown marker i colored in the eyes and nose of the skull.

Then i played with the arrangement of the skull and stickers, when i was happy i adhered some to the journal card and some with foam dots. Then I added the journaling card with foam dots to a kraft card base.

With brown ink i stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment from the TAWS Yappy set. I thought it still needed something so i stamped a row of tiny arrows along the left side.

  3. The arrows are the perfect touch, Dana!
    Good luck with the paper :) I was always ALWAYS a last minute writer too :)

  4. Marvelous masculine, Dana! Writing a research paper: ugh! I'm with you about procrastinating when it comes to writing...and given that I'm an English teacher, that's rather absurd! I'm all good with editing other people's stuff, but to create my own compositions...ewww! Good luck with your topic; I'm sure your paper will be fabulous!
