Stamped Collage - Happy Birthday Plain & Simple - Tent Fold Card

Hello, Jutta here and today I'd like to share a tent fold Birthday Card
made using the cheery new Quietfire Design -Happy Birthday Plain & Simple stamp set.

The fact that these stamps are mounted makes doing a 
Stamped Collage super easy. 

To make this card start with a 4-1/4"x 5-1/2" tent fold card base.

(Note- make collage right on the storage sheet that the stamps come mounted on.)

Rearrange all but the very bottom stamp on the storage sheet. With repositionable tape adhere the entire storage sheet to a stamp block.

Then using distress markers colour each stamp a different colour. Stamp all at once directly onto your card base. Add dots, matching colours to each stamped Happy Birthday.

The final Happy Birthday is inked well and stamped bolder at bottom right.

Colour pearls to match and attach randomly along dotted lines, see photo.

To complete run the spiced marmalade distress marker all around  edge of  card base.
Add ribbon to button then adhere to card base with glue dot. Tie ribbon around top of card.

Extra tips: If you like the arrangement why not store stamps in that configuration then you are ready to go when it's time to make another card.  Use a variety of colours or go monochromatic the choice to personalize this card is almost endless.

Materials used:
Quietfire Design -Happy Birthday Plain & Simple stamp set.
Ranger Distress Ink - seedless preserves.
Ranger Distress Marker -wild honey, spiced marmalade, rusty hinge, barn door, aged mahogany 
                                          and fired brick.
White cardstock for base, Pearls and button.

Be sure to enter the Tuesday-Winsday Draw  this week for a chance to win these versatile set of stamps.

Good luck and thanks for the visit!
