Today the My Favorite Things team is sharing samples of two fun new Die-namics/Stamp sets — Jersey and Bookmark. I took this opportunity to make a card for my nephew’s birthday.
I used the Retro Squares strip to frame the “Happy BD” message. The little star separating the words is from Lisa’s Circus Spectacular.
The star tab is actually a Notched Tag, upside down. I die-cut the star from the “patterned” tag, then layered that tag atop a die-cut brown tag.
After die-cutting the jersey, I stamped the 16 (because my nephew is 16…wow) using Amuse Studio French Roast ink. The brown lines were drawn in with a marker (by simply following the embossed lines from the die-cut). I then layered the jersey atop two layers of die-cut tablet backing and adhered to the card using foam boosters.
I “borrowed” the idea from Lisa to use this sentiment from My Favorite Sentiments. She had used it inside a birthday card and I thought it was perfect. (Plus it’s a nice, large sentiment. And this is a rather large card.)
