Created this Clean & Simple CAS Birthday Card with idea in mind to use Tim Holtz Mini Blueprint stamp, Vintage Sewing Machine. Then I needed a sentiment and decided to go out of my comfort zone which I have been doing a bit of lately and create my own sentiment using Lawn Fawn Smitty's ABCs stamps & Docerela Creations "Happy Birthday" sentiment. I created the sentiment in 2 parts since there was only one "s" letter in the LF Smitty's ABCs stamp set.
For a play on words
I placed the letters I needed on my block to stamp:
and I then stamped the next set of letters with the Docerela Creations "Happy Birthday":
Used Kraft cardstock as base, white layer & gray layer.
Embossed the white layer with Cuttlebug Wedding Suite.
Stamped the TH Vintage Sewing Machine on right side of card. Added the sentiment layer which I stamped on a separate piece of white cardstock because I did not want to chance messing up the white layer with embossing & stamped TH Vintage Sewing Machine. Added a gray strip embossed with Cuttlebug Just My Type embossing folder that looked like sewing stitches to me.
embossing: Cuttlebug Just My Type embossing folder
ink: Memento London Fog
paper: cardstock - Kraft, white, gray
stamp: Lawn Fawn Smitty's ABCs, Docerela Creations sentiment "Happy Birthday"
Tim Holtz: stamp - Mini Blueprints - Vintage Sewing Machine
