Autumn Birthday Card

Hello stamping friends!  I hope you had a good weekend.  Ours felt busy with sports and other events, but it was lovely weather with a bit of time to relax too.  I made a card yesterday afternoon that I think will work well for my mom's fall birthday.


I kept it very clean and simple. I colored the image with pencils.  After experimenting with different colors for the word die, it worked out well to just layer the green happy over a black happy.  A few Nuvo glitter drops finished off the front.


I do not often share the inside of a card, but I especially like this one. I used the second generation stamping of the wreath.  The happy die I have is part of a combo stamp set, so I was able to stamp that on the inside along with the word, "birthday."  It was easy and it goes perfectly.


Supplies:  Power Poppy Sunny Harvest stamps set, Hero Arts Happy stamp n cut set, Versafine Onyx black ink, Prismacolor pencils, Avery Elle Wonky Stitched rectangles dies, Nuvo glitter drops in Copper

Thanks so much for stopping by!!!

Lovely coloring, the happy is just perfect for this wreath and I like the green layered onto the black, The inside is so pretty it could be another front of a card!

Tried to comment on my phone but it didn't take...
This card captures the feeling of fall. The wreath is lovely and I like the way you added the sentiment with the black layer acting as a shadow.
Looks great!

Well, I was wrong, Heidi. I thought I commented on this card, but I see I didn't. However, I know I saw your email from this post (I am way behind it's sad...ha!). This is gorgeous, and I love how you've used this sweet fall sprig to make a wreath and added the word die. Your coloring is perfect! And I love the inside too! Beautifully done both in and out, and I know your mom had to have LOVED this card!! Pinning this for a CASE!! Hugs, precious friend! xoxo
