Ink DesignBlock Birthday in Sepia Versafine and stamp on notecard. Gently sponge more Sepia Ink around the edges. Ink large square stamp from clear set in Black Versafine on white cardstock and emboss with clear embossing powder. Paint using H2O's. Cut out a piece of chocolate card stock large enough to attach painted image on top leaving space to attach the greeting. Wrap a piece of the gingham ribbon and tie in a knot on the left side. Trim ends to desired length. Attach painted image over ribbon on brown cardstock with glue or double stick tape. Attach brown card to left side of stamped notecard. Punch out word tag from a strip of white cardstock 2-7/8" x 5/8". Stamp "Best Birthday Wishes" from the clear set in Black Versafine on the word tag punch out and emboss with clear. Attach tag to card covering a portion of the brown cardstock and a portion of the stamped notecard with glue or double stick tape. Stamp the greeting of your choice inside and you've got a beautiful hand-made birthday card!
