I'm still working on building up my stash of birthday cards concentrating on more masculine cards. I'm submitting this one to AAA Cards - AAA#148 where they have a sketch with an option of animals, CAS on Friday - CASOF#162 where they want us to use a stencil, and Cardz 4 Guyz - C4G#227 where they have a theme of celebration.
I stamped the zebra directly on the card and heat embossed with clear powder. I then masked off the card to create a stripe and also the zebra. I used a star stencil and distress inks to create the stripe. After removing the masks I added borders either side of the stripe. I finished with a simple sentiment. On the inside, I simply stamped the zebra again and added a fun greeting.
I woke up silly early this morning so I spent a while watching a couple of videos - the STAMPtember product release from Simon Says Stamp, and Jennifer's McGuire's video showing some lovely samples using the new release. Today is a day when I wished I still lived in Michigan - my shopping basket would have been so full!! I'm going to try and post everyday this month to celebrate STAMPtember!! That's all for now.
