Another November Birthday…

See?  I told you my November calendar was chocked full of birthdays.  This is for a very special, long-time friend who is celebrating a BIG birthday.  We will travel to their beautiful lake-side home where their son and daughter-in-law will cook and serve a gourmet meal for about six couples.  Should be a wonderful evening so I wanted to make him a special birthday card accompanied by a favorite bottle of vino.

Here’s his card…

Love the fancy fold and the inside…

The world circles were made by stamping the World Map background stamp on acetate with Staz-on Black.  The back of the acetate was painted loosely with green acrylic paint, let it dry and punch it out. Then mounted these “world” circles on a Marina Mist circle.  I think I saw this technique on Sandi MacIver’s blog here.

Here are the supplies used:

  • Stamps:  World Map Background, Chalk Talk
  • Ink:  Real Red, Old Olive, Marina Mist, Staz-On Black
  • Paper:  Very Vanilla, Old Olive, Marina Mist, Real Red
  • Tools:  Woodgrain Embossing Folder, Chevron Punch, Large Oval Punch, Circle Punches
  • Embellishments:  Acetate (for world circles)

Here’s your “B-ism” for today…”Life isn’t about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.”

So while you are creating your new self, get those fingers inky!
