Not just for Christmas!

Morning Bloggers.

Today I'm sharing another card made with the Tatty Button range of stamps that I'm showing on Create & Craft on 6th December.

This one is made with the Creative Expressions Tatty Button Present Wrapping stamp. As you can see it can be used for any occasion.

I stamped the image in Jet Black Archival and quickly embossed it using Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I coloured the image using a mix of matt and mica Cosmic Shimmer Drawing Inks. I cut the image out using the largest of the Spellbinders Lattice Rectangles dies.

I stamped the Happy Birthday text from the Creative Expressions Flutter Florals stamp set in Jet Back Archival and embossed with clear embossing powder. I cut the sentiment out using an oval nestie and made a faux nestie in green card.

The card was assembled as shown. The backing paper is Basic Grey. I ran two lines of super sticky tape down the right-hand side of the card and ruffled some Moss Green and Toffee Beige Vintage Ribbon. I did some paper piercing all around a larger piece of green card using my Tim Holtz Ruler and a pricking tool and mounted my design onto it.

I tied a messy ribbon with Moss Green and Toffee Beige Vintage Ribbon and added it to my border. Finally, I added a Creative Expressions Wooden Button and some Baker's Twine to my bow.

I'm sharing this card with Make It Monday #65
