MC June/14 - Birch Moments - HB

And another week where there are so many challenges for guy cards...

Side folded my white card (4.25"w x 5.5"h). taped my Memory Box Birch stencil down and applied Versamark all over, then swiped my sponge using Pan Pastels in blue, purple and rose tones. Cleaned off my stencil, then lay it back down and outlined all the openings using a .05 Copic Multiliner pen.

eCut the word "Moments" (Quietfire Design - Silhouette OnLine Store) from white cardstock. (PS I first separated the words...). Also cut a shadow layer and inked it with Versafine "Blue Lagoon". Ran both through my 1.5" Zyron and adhered them together, then on to the card, off setting it.

Masked the rest of the quote ("Hand in hand") to only get the word "Life's" inking it with Versafine Black Onyx and clear embossing. Then stamped the "cherish" with the black and embossed.

Stamped the bird (Quietfire Design) with the black on white cardstock and fussy cut around it, then sponged with a dirty blue Distress sponge and adhered to branch.

Inside I stamped part of a quote (Quietfire Design "Love where you're at...") masking of the part I didn't need and stamped with the black, clear embossed. Stamped the "Happy Birthday" (Quietfire Design).

Wrote the words "Big Guy" with the black multiliner on white cardstock and cut out, hitting the edges with the blue sponge and coloring inside the letters with colored pencils..

Stamped the bird with the black and colored with Prisma colored pencils.
