Well Worded Birthday Wishes - CTS#85

Today I have a sketch for you from the CAS(E) this Sketch Challenge Blog:

I went to sleep last night with this sketch on my mind and woke up today with this card in my head:

Well Worded Birthday Wishes - CTS#85

Well Worded Birthday Wishes - CTS#85

Isn't it fun? The background paper is from the Typeset Designer Series Paper Pack. When I first saw this paper I just couldn't imagine how to use it, but it works perfectly with the Mustache Framelit Die! The pattern paper has a vintage feel so I used Crumb Cake card stock to keep that feeling going. Some rounded edges, a simple sentiment from the For You stamp set and a matching lined envelope round this project out. It's very easy to put together and would be a great card for mass production.

When I was finished I decided to keep playing with this die and pulled out the matching stamp set, Well Worded:

For this one I stamped the mustache image in Versamark onto Basic Black card stock, heat embossed it and then used the Mustached Framelit Die to die cut the image. I popped it up on Dimensionals, added a layer of Basic Black card stock and created a coordinating envelope. That's it! Super easy!

But wait...there's more! I couldn't just stop there so...

This time I stamped the image onto Whisper White card stock with Versamark and heat embossed it with Black Embossing Powder. I added some pattern paper from the Back To Black Designer Series Paper pack for effect and made a matching envelope.

Which one is your favorite? I love them all but I think in the end the balance tipped just a bit in favor of the vintage feeling card so that's the one I entered into the challenge.

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you find some crafty time soon!
