Today on the SHC blog I have a project that extends the use of your stamps. The Avery Elle Love Is In the Air stamp set is very love/Valentines themed, so I challenged myself to make a birthday card. Paired with the Concord & 9th Simple Serif Alphabet Dies, I think I achieved a card that could even be masculine!

I started out by blending on some Broken China Distress Oxide Ink over the Echo Park Pirate Tales Sail Away stencil onto a white card base.


For the sentiment, I die cut the ‘HAPPY’ letters using the Concord & 9th Simple Serif Alphabet Dies. I adhered these towards the bottom of the card base, stamping out the ‘BIRTHDAY’ sentiment from the MFT Essential Sentiments set.


A bright and non-lovey birthday card!
