Hero Arts has a Birthday Challenge with five category options, and I made a floral birthday card for the Floral Birthday Cards category. Below are the Hero supplies I used, including the floral stencil, newspaper background stamp, and the clear stamp set using the happy birthday greeting.
And below is the finished floral birthday card:
I put the floral stencil on a piece of white cardstock and stamp the newspaper background with Versamark ink on top of the stencil. Flip over the whole thing and use your fingers on the cardstock to make the newspaper stamp stamping into the floral petals. Then, I remove the stencil and white embossed the cardstock. After that, I put the floral stencil back to the white cardstock, and applied different shades of blue Distress ink pads onto the floral stencil. You can see the white embossed newspaper background text resisted with blue inks. Finish the card with "Happy Birthday to You" greeting and attach two star enamel stickers on the stripe. I put the foam dots behind the greeting stripe to make it pop out.
