simple birthday card.

August 09, 2015

Before I craft I always have a concept in my head.  Whether it was something that I thought of earlier or another day.  My makeup guru pal Jo's birthday was coming up, so I decided to craft up a birthday card for her and have a night out to dinner.  I was going through my card stock and came across this green patterned envelope set from Paper Source.  After catching my eye on the envelope, I knew I wanted colors that complimented the moss patterned tone.

Everything I used was on hand.
  • vintage rubber stamp, and paris washi tape is from Anthropologie.  
  • happy birthday rubber stamp is from Michaels.
  • vintage card stock as background is from a gift from a scrap booking convention.

Other than light colors, I also love a good deep dark mustard yellow and forest/olive green don't you agree?  Sounds like someone is ready for fall to come along.. ;)
