Hazel and Ruby: Gone Typo Celebrate Today Birthday Card

Hello! I created a birthday card with Hazel & Ruby's Gone Typo Collection. A sweet friend in the industry is celebrating a birthday today - Happy Birthday, Ken :) This collection is versatile that you can make a masculine themed project too!

With a combination of die templates, I created a wonderful layer of JustRite® Papercrafts' Vintage Labels Four and Spellbinders Labels Twenty-Two and Marvelous Squares dies. Once I cut/embossed them with Wanderlust Patterned Paper (both sides) and white cardstock, I inked the edges of the patterned papers to make them stand out a little...using both direct ink to paper technique and some cotton tips.

I stamped my image/sentiment from Celebrate Today Vintage Labels Four Clear Stamps set on white cardstock and then cut/embossed Vintage Labels Four die over the it. To color, I used Teal and Blue Art GRIP® Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils by using a water brush and my fingers to blend the Light Yellow PITT Pastel Pencil area...all wonderful products from Faber-Castell® Design Memory Craft®!

Then I layered all with 3D Foam Squares to give the layers dimension and placed it on top of the card panel that was handcut with Just Sayin' Patterned Paper that was also edged with ink. This card base came from Hazel & Ruby's A6 Card Pad convenient to use and great designs! Each collection has a card pad :)
