I created this birthday card with the telegram stamp from Ephemeral Backgrounds. I added "Birthday" from Polaroid Cutie by masking off "Happy" when I inked it. I dressed it up with a black mat, rounded corners and Distress ink. I layered it onto a die cut embossed metal shape cut with the new Spellbinders Labels Twenty One! I embossed it over Spellbinders Floral and Stone Impressabilities and added some ink and sanding. It's all layered onto a black rectangle with rounded corners, then onto a piece of Graphic 45 paper. There's a bit of ribbon, colored with Distress ink, tucked under each end with 3 square copper brads touched with StazOn Jet Black ink. To set it all off, I added Ranger Black Enamel dots and dashes....seemed appropriate for a "telegram"!
As this post goes live, I should be on my way to Mexico to enjoy some warm days on the beach! We're taking a little vacation for my son's wedding! For that reason, you may not hear from me for awhile! I'm not sure if I'll have easy access to internet.
Be back soon!
