Inspired by Challenge - Birthday Card tutorial


This card was created for INSPIRED BY BLOG CHALLENGE.  Here is the photo we were given to take inspiration from:

Here is the card I created (step-by-step instructions follow the picture!!)

Begin by taking a 8x5.5' piece of crystal blue cardstock to form the card base (fold in half)

Next take a piece of 3x4 chocolate card stock. Take the vintage photo distress paint and paint over it until it reaches the desired texture. (The vintage photo distress paint is not CTMH)

Let it dry and attach it to the bottom of the card.

Take the paper piercer and scratch some lines to create a wood texture feel.

Attach the zip strip from the Florentine paper pack.

Add some natural hemp, tie some knots in it.

Add some wooden flowers from the wooden garden shapes embellishments

Finish off by stamping in Crystal Blue ink 
The bird is from the Blessed stamp from last years April stamp of the month and the Happy Birthday is from the current catalogue: Card Word Puzzle
