hehe get it? Sorry terrible joke. Anyway here is a card I made.
The hats are all from Lost Coast Designs I totally love all their stamps, and the bird I'm not sure he was just a one off stamp I got and not sure about the Happy Birthday either that was just another one little stamp on it's own. Anyway I started by taking some grunge paper and embossing it with two Tim Holtz folders the circles the one that looks like rays of sunshine I used various distress ink colours on the paper to highlight the embossing and then I cut those out on the Big Shot with stars and rectangle dies. I edged them all with walnut stain. I cut out the birdie and the hat and also coloured them with some distress ink and a craft nib. I am not the biggest fan of cutting stuff out but I got there in the end. I also stamped the greeting on some paper and cut that out, and the green on there is distress stain. Then I layered them all up to create the finished card.
