December Birthday

I have several December birthday cards to make, and here is the first.  I love the Tim Holtz Festive Stencil, and decided to ink it up for one of the Birthday cards I need this month.  I used Simon Says inks in Green Leaf, Dark Chocolate, and  Schoolhouse Red; and, a touch of Pine Needles Distress ink to color the stencil image.

I used a stacked Happy Birthday sentiment (I cut a bunch out on my Silhouette Portrait a while back), and inked it with the Pine Needles and then covered it with clear Wink of Stella - it is a new brush and wow, it does put out the shine.  (My old one was filled with water, and I can't wait to use it for some water coloring.)

I added some Darice sequins and Lawn Fawn twine to finish the card.

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Such a nice birthday card! The stencil is so pretty used this way. Happy 2015, Cat!

  2. Oh so cute! I love that stencil and the bright colors you chose. That baker's twine across the top creates the perfect finishing touch!

  3. Gorgeous card, Cat! I love how you colored the stencil and the font on your sentiment is so pretty! Such a lovely idea for a December birthday!

  4. Lovely job with that stencil - it was one of my favorites this season.

  5. Such a pretty b-day card, Cat :)

  6. I love that holly spray! This makes for a really festive winter birthday card, Cat! There's nothing better than a brand new WOS! I had some time to scroll back and enjoy some of your outstanding Christmas card creations, too! I wish you all the best in the new year! Thank you for your friendship!! Hugs, Darnell
