I’ve wanted to make one of these subway art style cards for a while and today I have to make a birthday card for my godson, so it seemed the perfect opportunity to try it out.
I’ve used the Family Party stamp set for the numbers and stars. This stamp set is on the retiring list but I higly recommend you grab it while you can, especially if you make a lot of cards featuring numbers or for family memebers. As a heads up there is nothing similar in the new catalogue.
Firstly I took a piece of Very Vanailla cardstock and gave it a very light layer of Sahara Sand using a Blending Brush, concentrating on the edges. I then took Real Red to add the numbers, Misty Moonlight to add the Happy Birthday and Mango Melody to add the stars.
The Happy Birthday greeting comes from the new stamp set Party Puffins which will be in the new catalogue released on May 4th.
Once all the stamping was complete I ran the sheet through the Brick and Mortar 3D Embossing folder and the adhered to a layer of Real Red cardstock before adding to my Very Vanilla card base.
I hope my godson likes it and that I can give him this card in person as I haven’t actually seen him since he was 10!
