Easy Birthday Card for the Older Lady

I loved the You've Got Style stamp set from Stampin' Up! when I first saw it and it went onto my wish list. Finally I got it and I've used the sentiments from it quite a lot, they're just great sizes. So I figured it was time to use the image of the wonderful old dear and pop her on a super simple beginners card.

I used everything Stampin' Up! for this, a Whisper White base with a layer of Broadway Bound DSP and then Whisper White scraps for the sentiment which is stamped in Basic Black archival ink and mounted with dimensionals and the same Whisper White scrap for the main image of the lady and her cat. Again I stamped these out using Basic Black and then used markers to colour in elements of the lady and the cat, using an aqua blender to soften the ink in places. I also used a Real Red marker and the aqua blender to edge off the two white pieces with some smudged ink.

That was it! So simple and yet so much fun.

There is a quick video tutorial on my channel Crafty Little Things UK over on You Tube but I've also embedded it below for you to watch here.

Thanks for dropping in, enjoy the end of the weekend.
