I needed a birthday card this week for a male friend and decided the Crafting Forever stamp set would make a great card for him.

I took a panel of Whisper White cardstock 5 by 3” and stamped the 3 pen image across the panel using Archival Basic Black ink. I wanted to keep this card very simple and decided I would only add colour to the flowery pens and I choose the Berry Burst, Lemon Lime Twist, Bermuda Bay and Calypso Coral Marker Pens to add some shading. I added a thin strip of Basic Black cardstock to the bottom edge of the stamped piece to give some definition to the panel.

I stamped the sentiment from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set using the Bermuda Bay ink pad onto a scrap of Whisper White cardstock and trimmed it out using my Scissors. I repeated the thin rim of Basic Black cardstock. I stuck the sentiment to the back of the large stamped panel using Tombow Liquid Adhesive.

I added the whole stamped piece to a Bermuda Bay card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. So happy with how this card turned out, I love it.
