Birthday Wishes

Here's my card for the current Viva la Verve sketch.  It's another pretty easy to mail design that has found its way into my last box of cards for Operation Write Home.

Birthday Wishes card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps from Verve Stamps
I used the sketch to create a masculine birthday design.  I used the Simple Stories patterned paper piece to pick the colors for the card.  The panel was adhered to a piece of olive green cardstock, then dark brown cardstock.  I used a file folder tab die to cut a strip from kraft cardstock.  After edging it with contrasting dark blue cardstock, I adhered it across the top of the panel.  It was accented with a die cut gold star.  I stamped a birthday sentiment from Verve's Making a Statement stamp set in brown ink on a kraft strip and adhered it near the bottom of the panel.  The finished panel was adhered to an easy to write on cream card base.

Stop back in a few hours to check out this week's Mojo Monday sketch . . .
