Happy Birthday Dad

My Dad recently had a birthday and like all crafters I struggle with male cards, luckily Penny Black has a very versatile range of stamps and dies which made the task easier! Who knew their Christmas stamps and dies would make a birthday card!


Materials used:-
Penny Black Dressed in Snow cling stamp 40-583, Inspired Die 51-385, Banner Sentiments clear stamp set 30-423 and The Sweetest clear stamp set 30-294.  Tombow marker pens & IZINK Mer du sud dye ink pad and IZINK white pigment ink pad, Stablo white pen, Kraft Card Versamark ink and clear embossing powder and Versafine Onyx Black ink.

How to:-

1) Colour dressed in snow stamp using tomboy markers adding darker shades to elements of the trees and then using water to spread the colour.

2) Cover the stamped image with versa mark ink and add clear embossing powder and heat set.

3) Colour in the ground using Tombow pens and then use a blending tool to create the sky using IZINK dye ink.

4) Die cut deer from craft card, add shadows using tombow pens and then colour antlers with IZINK white pigment ink.  Add dots to deer's back with white pen and attach to front of card.

I hope my Dad likes it, he enjoys being in the countryside and this reminds me of a crisp winter day!

Thanks for joining me today hugs Cathy x
