Happy Birthday Stripes

Hello, Gemma here today, sharing a quick and simple birthday card.

The Altenew Birthday Builder stamp set is a favourite of mine. I love the variety of fonts in this set, which give so many possibilities. I thought it would be fun to use lots of them on a card.

To create a place for the sentiments to sit, I first used the Altenew Watercolour stencil and some distress oxides to add stripes to a card base. I used blueprint sketch, twisted citron, wild honey and antique linen.

I then used my stamp positioner to help me stamp all the sentiments in the stripes. The stamp positioner is useful for allowing several lines to be stamped at once, speeding up the design. I also like to double stamp to get a darker impression.

This design would is perfect for recreating in different colours, or using with different sentiments you may have in your collection.

Thanks for joining me today,
