Happy Birthday Thinlits graffiti card


I never thought I’d have so much fun with this Happy Birthday die. I was only borrowing it from my friend Kelly, but now it’s on my list of must-haves.

I particularly like watercolouring a background and then cutting it out to create a multi-coloured greeting. Here I ’ve used Lemon Lime Twist and Emerald Envy.

It tops a graffiti-style card inspired by Julie Kettlewell.  I’ve used a bunch of stamp sets... In The City, Marquee Messages and Five For All. I wish I could say the card was appreciated but, as it was for a teenage boy, I think the money inside may have been of more interest!

    1. You're welcome. I can't claim it was my idea but it's definitely a great one to fall back on when you're stumped for a teenage card

Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. I love receiving genuine comments - I do get bored of deleting dodgy links though!
