Natalie- Happy Birthday Card **TECHNIQUE WEEK**

Today Natalie shows us how to make our own background using a stamp, light cardstock, and a complimenting (and darker) ink. Then she takes it a step forward by stamping a small mirrored tile. What a great way to add dimension and a bit of shine to an already cute card.

Happy Birthday

Bazzill Basics red scolloped edge card, black, orange, white and red card
American Crafts polka dot orange ribbon
Mirrored tile
Imaginisce Snag 'em Stamps - All Kinds of Happy Collection - Happy Birthday stamp
Imaginisce Snag 'em Stamps - For Peep's Sake collection - Chick stamp
Black Staz-on ink
Ranger Spiced Marmalade Distress ink
Red, brown and orange permanent marker pens
Make a base card from the orange card. Using the Happy Birthday stamp and the orange ink, stamp the greeting over the base card. Mount a strip of the red scalloped card onto a strip of black card leaving a small border and attach to the left hand side of the card. Attach a length of ribbon down this panel and tie another strip of ribbon onto it before securing it. Stamp your chick image onto the mirrored tile and colour with permanent pens. Mount onto a white square, a red circle, a black square and a white square and attach to the bottom right hand corner of your card.
