Belated Birthday


I've been enjoying "cardmaking therapy" while ignoring the stress in my life right now. You should see how many cards I've made! I figure I need to start getting my stuff ready to be packed up and who knows how long it will take me to get things set up in the new place. I do believe my stash is adequately stocked up right now.

I wanted to add belated between Verticle Happy Birthday so I stamped one word at a time. (See the previous post below for instructions on how I did this.) I guess if I were to use unmounted stamps I wouldn't have to go thru so much trouble, but...
Actually this particular stamp probably has enough room to add belated even without going thru all the trouble I did, but I was afraid it would be a tight fit and I didn't have the time or paper to make a mistake.

Card Size: 6" tall x 4 1/4 " wide
Stamps: Verticle Happy Birthday and belated (Hambo Stamps) Abigail and "Am I too late for Cake?" (Eat Cake Graphics) ETA: I bought this stamp from the Stampbuzz.com
Printed Paper: Purple ( Provo Craft)
Cardstock: Vintage Violet (SU),White card(Georgia Pacific)
Ink:Brilliance Graphite Black (Tsukenko), Vintage Violet(SU)
Other: Prismacolor Pencils

I absolutely love that image and how you used it! Your coloring is fantastic. I think I am going to have to have an order placed at Eat Cake Graphics (an appropriate name for this image, lol). TFS
