Maple Leaf Side Strip Birthday Card
(inside: have an awesome day)
This card features the die from the Poppystamps Maple Leaf Side Strip Stencil & Die set cut from one of the “smooshed” panels I created a few days ago.
The “happy” was cut with the Walter & Winnie “In a Word: Happy Cutaway” die (no longer available), and I used the Stampin’ Up “Cheese Cloth” background stamp (retired) and GKD Kraft ink to add some texture. (I had cut and stamped several of these when I created my “Autumn Birthday with Smooshed Background” card.)
I heat embossed the “birthday” with a stamp from the Spellbinders STP-002 stamp set and American Crafts Zing! Brown Sugar embossing powder and punched it out with the Stampin’ Up Word Window punch (retired).
The inside sentiment (with a fun font!) is from the “Happy Birthday Collection” stamp set (CS072) from Elizabeth Craft Designs.
The green paper is from the Momenta Paper Pad Lot# 0005593, and Papertrey Ink Fine Linen and heavy weight black card stock was also used.
Rusty Hinge and Gathered Twigs Distress inks and Wild Honey Distress Oxide ink were used for the “smooshed” strip of leaves.
Thanks for checking out my card project!
