I made this birthday card for my friend at work. Fun chalkboard technique using white craft ink for the bird design. After the image was stamped with the craft ink, I used various colors of chalk and a sponge applicator to "tap" the various colors on top of the stamped image. Gave it a nice, soft look. I used the Stampin Up square lattice texture embossing folder for the orange background, the top note die for the yellow matted section, and lots of other colors for layering. I stamped the verse on white card stock and punched out using the small oval punch. I layered that on top of pink card stock punched with the scalloped oval punch. A black scalloped border was punched and layered with turquoise ribbon/bow. The lilac card stock on the bottom of the card gives it the added statement. Hope you like it!
