A Simple Birthday Card That Looks Great!

Hello My Fellow Crafters,

It has been a busy time in my craft room making all kinds of cards, but I love this kind of busy 🙂

Today I want to share with you a birthday card that I made for our nephew.  And to be honest I really want to make a simple card, but just because its simple doesn’t mean it will not look good.

I used the April Stamp of the Month stamp set from Close to my Heart.  A really great thing that Close To My Heart does is every month they have a stamp special.  If you spend $50.00 you can purchase the stamp of the month for just $5.00, otherwise you can purchase it anytime for $17.95 USD.  I know that the catalog that I have ends this month, so not sure what’s in the new idea book.

This stamp set is called Typed Note #S1504  and it comes in a set of 19 stamps.  If you want to order this stamp set just click on the link and it will take you to my friend Kim’s Close To My Heart website 🙂

Ok back to the card.  I stamped the typewrite and the sentiment that goes inside the “paper” with the Close to my Heart Archival Black Exclusive Ink #44751 on white cardstock and then just layered that image on two layers of colored cardstock.  This was simple, but I think it turned out great.

~ Happy Birthday Luke ~

Make It A Great Day and Don’t Forget To Leave Time To Craft!
