Twilight CS:   9 x 4 you will score at 4

White Cardstock:

8 x 3 white score at 4

a piece of white cs 2 ¾ square  & 3 ¾ sq

2½ square

Do special stamping and sponging with mask to create fun effect… I brushed edges with ink then stamped my greeting in the very center of my card.

Then using post it notes I mask off areas stamp  part of the birthday stamp and sponge

with color

 then move postits and repeat.

3½ square

With this I used all the numbers from reminder set inked them with twilight but when I stamped but did not press down hard, you could also do this with second generation technique.  I then brushed ink over them.

 

Now to build the card.

 The twilight is your base, fold is on the left, 4 inches fold over, the white 3 3/4 white layers onto this 4″ area and then the 3 1/2 piece with numbers stamped on it goes on top of this.  Next the 3 x 8 card that you folded in half will layer with a fold on right side and fold over the 4″ flap. 

Next cut the Blue B&T from wonderland at 2 3/4 x 3 3/4 abd attach three of our black button brads using our great new ruler to get perfect place ment.

then attach this piece to the front of the 3 x 8 folded card.

Then I layerd the 2 3/4 sq. on this but make sure you only put tape on center so this does not stick to other layers of card.

The special greeting and masked stamping goes on top of this.

open

I stamped beginning of my greeting here

then open the opposite side

mark their birthday with circle or bling

final greeting

hope you enjoy making this card.  Now hop on over to {Lisa’s Blog} for more great ideas

    I just made 2 of these cards! One is for my grandson. So instead of random numbers I stamped “Nick is 7” all over it. It looks great. Thanks for a fun idea.
