I'm really getting into cards lately, and I've been buying up a bunch of fun stamps, so I wanted to make him a birthday card. (I had already made him a Valentine's Day card, which you can check out here.) Here's the card I made him:
Materials: white cardstock, Studio G alphabet clear stamps, American Crafts Jared clear stamps, ColorBox cat's eye dye ink in Mermaid
Since I'm really new to cards, I was a little stuck for an idea, so I turned to Katie's Pinterest board of cards and I came across this card, made by Jennifer McGuire for Studio Calico. I had a chevron stamp from the AC set I just bought that would be perfect for making those chevron strips, so I went with it! It came out pretty great, I thought, and Ryan liked it, so: mission accomplished! I can't wait to make more cards. I have lots of ideas!
And here's a bonus photo of Ryan and me at the Stars game! Those things are always fun. Ryan bought me a jersey, too! My first sports jersey ever.
