Happy Birthday Dan!

I made a birthday card for my son, Dan. He loves to garden, so I thought I would go with a nature theme.
I started by creating my background with Distress Oxide inks. Rub them on the craft mat, spritz with water, and lay the card into it. Repeat as often as you like - I like to dry one layer before adding another. 

Next, I stamped leaf images from stamps I made into the background.

Then, using my MISTI, I placed the flower stamps exactly where I wanted them and stamped.

Birthday wishes stamped inside the card...with the MISTI you can stamp repeatedly until you get a beautiful crisp image.

I added a touch of red and orange to balance out the greens, doodled in a tiny bit and stamped the envelope. I hope you've enjoyed this fun and easy card!
Let me know if you have any questions.
