Birthday Rocks

This card was made so easily as I had bought the co-ordinating card kit with the stamp set from Taylored Expressions. The stamp set is called You're My Hero and has guitars as well as the stamps I have used here. I struggle with making cards for men but here I just matched the inks to the paper and it was so simple. I have enough paper, card, brads and ribbon to make several more of these kind of cards so I can whip up one just when needed. To make the pierced holes half decent looking, I used my circle scissors to cut out a circle, used Dotto to stick it over the image circle and just pierced around the outside.

Card: Stampin' Up! Tangerine Tango, Black, Whisper White
Ink: Stampin' Up! Ballet Blue, Riding Hood Red, So Saffron, Versafine Onyx Black
Other: Stampin' Up small star punch, brads and paper from kit

That set of stamps are awesome Jean - I've looked at them before myself! It certainly is easier when you buy stuff in a kit though - the cards just seem to go together perfectly! Great card!
