Hello everyone, Ilda here from I Love Doing All things crafty!
Today I have an example of a quick and simple birthday card you can make for a crafty friend. The Studio Katia Birthday Greetings is packed with wonderful birthday sentiments for both crafty and non-crafty friends. It is definitely one of my go-to stamp sets when I make birthday cards for my crafty friends.
To make the card, I blended a few colors of Distress Oxide Ink on to a piece of Bristol Paper.
I then sprayed the paper with water to lift some of the color. Next, I die cut a piece of white cardstock using the Halftone Dots Cover Die to add to the colored panel and complete the background. I then glued the background onto a top folding A2 sized black card base. For the greeting, I stamped it on some black cardstock using a white pigment ink and then heat set it with white embossing powder. I then cut the paper into a square shape and added it to the center of the card, popping it up with foam tape. To add some shine and sparkle to the card, I added some April Crystals randomly to the card front.
To the inside of the card, I stamped this greeting onto a white piece of paper that I glued then on the inside panel.
Next time you want to make a quick and easy birthday card hopefully you think of and are inspired by this crafty friend birthday card of mine!
Thank you all for stopping by, until next time… Happy Crafting!

What a beautiful card! I love the colorful dots in the background 🙂
I really love this technique. I am wondering if you can use a stencil to get the same results. Love it.
I love the dotted card with the oxides in the background and the crafty saying. It is so cute. And the heart card with the cutouts on it is just beautiful. Thank you for all the wonderful samples that give me inspiration every day. Jana
