Today is April 22, 2015.
It is the 45th annual Earth Day in the United States.
It is also the birthday of my lovely granddaughter. I made this Earth Day birthday card to celebrate Kaley's 12th birthday.
This is how I made the card:
The base is a pre-made blank kraft cardstock card.
I used a piece of pretty collage-style pattered paper (Jublilee Pink Postage, K&Company) for the background.
I used four pieces of ephemera (ticket, flashcard, bird, butterfly) from a Tim Holtz "Thrift Shop" Ephemera pack. These items are reproductions of vintage print memorabilia.
I used the digital stamp "Tiara" from Mo's Digital Pencil. I colored the image with Copic Sketch markers and cut it out. I used adhesive to attach the ephemera and the colored digital image to the background paper.
I printed the sentiment, "It's my birthday and I will tiara if I want to", on white cardstock. This sentiment comes with the "Tiara" digital stamp. I cut out the sentiment with a Spellbinders die and distressed the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink. I attached the sentiment to the top of the card.
I used a Dymo label maker to make the words "Earth Day Birthday". I attached these labels to the front of the card.
I will enter this card in the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge: Due Date.
The "due date" is APRIL 22 - Earth Day and Kaley's birthday!
