Hibiscus Die Cut Birthday Card

Here is another die cut card made with a Little B set.  Besides wanting to highlight this wonderful 'Happy Birthday To You' die, I wanted to ink up a new Hero Arts stamp set (Color Layering Hibiscus) that I just obtained.  I thought the combination of the two would make a good 'guy' birthday card. (In this photo the 'BIRTHDAY' looks darker but that is due to the angle of the word.)
With the stamps I was able to print the hibiscus to simulate a vintage Hawaiian fabric look.  The card base was cut from watercolor paper using the technique explained on the previous post which makes the card taller.  At first I was going to spritz the paper with water to give the inks a chance to spread, but straight Versa Magic ink (from a pad) gave the look I wanted.  The words were also colored with the Versa Magic  to give the card an old fabric look.
Like the Little B die set in the previous post, this 'Happy Birthday To You' die set would make a terrific gift for a paper crafter and/or yourself. I hope that you will go shopping at a HM Ben Franklin Crafts to see all the wonderful gift possibilities.  I'm sure that you will find something outstanding for everyone on your shopping list.  Happy Shopping!
