You Get Sweeter Every Year Birthday Card

Sweet Birthday Card 3

You Grow Sweeter Every Year Birthday Card with Crafty Secrets

HAPPY FRIDAY, EVERYBODY!  It’s gonna be a good weekend, I can feel it.  And to get it started on the right foot, I’m sharing a fun birthday card with you!  Take a look:

Sweet Birthday Card 1

Get it?!  She’s baking sweet treats and she gets sweeter every year – bah-dum chhh!  I was browsing through my Crafty Secrets collection looking for inspiration when I came across the sentiment in the Garden Style Digital Art Stamps.  I thought it was adorable, but wanted to emphasize the “sweet” rather than the “growing” part of the sentiment, so I left the Garden stamps and started the search for baked goods.  I found just what I was looking for in my “Homemade” Images and Journal Notes booklet.

I cut out the image and used my Vintage Photo distress ink to make it look…well…vintage 😛  Then, I covered it in VersaMark and clear embossing powder and heated it through.  I embossed it once more, let it cool, then crumpled it a little to create small folds and cracks in the embossing.  I rubbed more Vintage Photo over the image (which was indeed starting to look like a vintage photo) to make the cracks stand out a little better, wiped off the excess, et voila!  From a plain paper image to a vintage photo!  How cool!

Luckily, there was another image in the Homemade Images booklet to fit the theme.  I gave it the same treatment and put it on the inside:

The “Happy Birthday” wasn’t a stamp in the Garden Style set – BUT – the digital set comes with the font for you to download!  I love that I can type any message I’d like and it matches the font on the outside.  Hooray for consistency!  It makes my perfectionist self very happy.

That’s it for me today!  I hope you enjoyed today’s card, and I hope you have a fantastic weekend!
