Have A Dapper Birthday



Hello, friends, followers and passers by.  Today I have a steampunk birthday card made for my son, using distress oxide inks, stencils, stamps and a Sizzix die.  The die was an impulse buy a long time ago and has laid unused since, this card was inspired by an article in Craft Stamper and I though the die would work well instead of a stamp. 


I used papermilldirect white linen card for the background, plain black card for layering and  white hemp for the card blank.

 

The background was blended with distress oxides and stencilled using Tim Holtz mini stencils, then stamped with Stampers Anonymous stamps.  The dapper die was cut out of the background and the background adhered to black card.  Stampers Anonymous simple sayings life moments was stamped, die cut and fastened to the card with sticky fixers.


The insert for the card was stencilled and a computer generated greeting added.

I love using the new distress oxides and have made another couple of similar cards for male birthdays next month.
