Worm Birthday Wishes

Hello all! 

I hope you have all had a good week. I've been busy with magazine work and coming up with some illustrations for a future issue of Crafts Beautiful.

The last card I posted was the birthday fishes using the Birthday Buddies stamp set by Paper Smooches. Well I have another little card created using the same stamp set. This features an adorable little worm popping his head out of the ground.

What you need...

Stamps: Birthday Buddies - Paper Smooches
Card stock: Kraft
Alcohol markers: Copic
Fine liner: black
Gel pen: white
Ink pad: Onyx Black - Versafine

What do you think? I think he's perfect for a male birthday card, especially with the Kraft card blank and the muted colours. 

This card is a small one, it measures 8.5cm x 12.5cm (3 3/8" x 5"). As it such an unusual size, it's the perfect opportunity to create a snazzy envelope. I love the We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board. 

As I tend to do quite a few unusual sized cards it means I can create the perfect sized envelope. The board has all the measurement printed on it for quick reference and a punch to make professional rounded edges.

I'm going to head off now, I made a brill birthday card for my husband Simon. I keep looking at it and giggling. It's his birthday on Tuesday 27th March, so I'll post it up soon after.

Thank you for popping by, see you soon!
