Distress Birthday

Hi there!  This week Mojo Monday had another fabulous sketch and I decided to give it a distress look, which worked well for the masculine birthday card that I needed.

I had a great piece of designer series paper from the retired This & That Epic Day primarily in Pool Party and Crumb Cake, so I decided to start with a Crumb Cake base, then layered the dsp on a separate panel of Crumb Cake card stock just slightly smaller than the base.  Next, I cut a piece of Kraft Corrugated card stock for the small vertical panel layered on the main panel.

I then took a piece of Pool Party Core'dination card stock, ran it through the Big Shot with the Boho Chic Textured Impression Embossing Folder, then distressed it with a Stampin' Sanding Block.  Before being adhered together, all layers were distressed with a Cutter Kit then lightly sponged with Crumb Cake Ink.  Some Hemp cord was wrapped around the horizontal piece and brads from Vintage Trinkets added to the upper left corner of the panel.

The sentiment, from the Celebrate Today stamp set, was stamped on Very Vanilla card stock, cut with a Starburst framelit and layered on a slightly larger Crumb Cake circle.

Thanks for looking - as always your visit and comments are so appreciated.  I've provided a link above to Mojo Monday, so be sure to use it and check out all the great inspiration!
