World Cardmaking Day!

What an exciting day today is!!  Each year, the first Saturday in October is WORLD CARDMAKING DAY!!!

I hope you were able to get some creative time in today!  I did - and let me share this quick simple card I created with you!!
Lovely Birthday card
I’ve been wanting to create a card using our (CTMH) marker’s. I have seen this technique done on other pieces of artwork.   Do you see the “paintbrush” strokes under the wording?  This was created using our ShinHan alcohol markers. 

What a QUICK & EASY way to bring in some color….and another way to use these WONDERFUL markers!!

I used the stamp set called “Lovely Birthday” and I know I’ll be using this stamp set quite often in the future!! 
I also hadn’t used our NEW Arrow Embossing folder…so it was time to incorporate that into this card as well!  After I embossed it, I inked the design with Whisper ink.

The piece of striped paper in the middle of the card, is the Thistle color of our Paper Fundamentals

Oh - these fundamental papers make me squeal with delight!  What beauty they bring to a piece!!
