Happy Birthday Card

I feel like it's been forever since I've shared a card on my blog! I just don't make them as often as I use to. 

However, I feel a changing in the wind. Going back to my roots! I've challenged myself to make three cards for every layout I create. 

Whoa.

Good luck with that Melissa. 

Thankfully, I don't care if I miss a goal. Haha! 

So, the card I'm sharing today is completely out of my creative box. I normally am quite content staying within my clean and simple and layered look. However, I've been having so much fun using stencils and modelling paste on my layouts that I thought, "What about on a card?"  

So I did. 


The mask I used is a design by Ronda Palazzari for The Crafters Workshop. Such a fun design and I love how it looks against the kraft paper. 


The texture is so overwhelming. From far away it looks so artsy! But it was ridiculously simple to put together. 


I began with the mask and spread on a thin coat of the modelling paste. Just enough to add some dimension. It almost looks embossed! After it dried, I stuck on the patterned paper and washi tape to the edges. Finished it off with a little layering for the sentiment and a flower. 

Ta dah! 

Yes folks. It's that simple. 


Thank you for swinging by today!
