I recently needed to make a guy birthday card, and was looking through my stencils to make a background. I pulled out the Altenew Leaf Burst stencil to make this simple but pretty card.
On a white panel I blended Distress inks through the stencil. This color palette is one of my favorite blends.
While I had the inks out, I made 3 of these panels for future cards, and die cut them using the Greetery Crimped Frame die.
Last, I die cut the Simon Says Stamp Happy Birthday Brush Script out of silver holographic cardstock, also from Simon. I affixed the sentiment to the center of the card. It's really bright and pretty in real life.
I matted the panel with So Silk Glamour Green cardstock and mounted it to a white base card.
