Have an Awesome Birthday

Here's my card for March's second Viva la Verve sketch.  I put together a masculine birthday card using Verve's new Simply Amazing stamp set and coordinating Amazing Adjectives dies.  These are quickly becoming favorites of mine!

Have an Awesome Birthday card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps from Verve Stamps
I stamped the "have an" and "birthday" sentiments in brown ink on a light blue panel, then filled in the space between them with the die cut "awesome."  To add dimension, I cut the word three times from brown cardstock and layered the die cut pieces.  The sentiment panel was adhered to a green cardstock panel with a strip of plaid paper along the bottom.  I accented the words with a trio of shiny silver stars. The finished panel was adhered to a bright blue card base.

Materials Used:
Simply Amazing stamp set, Amazing Adjectives dies (Verve Stamps); Memento Rich Cocoa ink (Tsukineko/IMAGINE Crafts); Lakehouse cardstock (WPlus9); Simply Chartreuse cardstock (Papertrey Ink); Chocolate Chip and Pacific Point cardstock (Stampin' Up!); silver paper (Target); Ecology-Go Green designer paper (Luxe Designs); circle die (Spellbinders); stitched star dies (Lil' Inker Designs); foam tape


  1. So cool! Love the colors and those shiny silver stars. Thanks for joining us at Viva la Verve!

  2. Great card Lori! Love the color combo and that bit of plaid paper at the bottom!
