Chill Out Birthday Invitation with video tutorial
Hi everyone,

It's Monday and that means a new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week it's all about "Chill out".

This time I made invitations to my birthday. Last weekend I celebrated it with friends and it was very fun and chill. I always like to send an invitation to invite them to my party. I started with embossing the background with the Ringer stencil. With four different shades of green: Mowed Lawn, Lucky Clover, Peeled Paint and Pine Needles Distress Ink I gave background spme color. And finished with Ground Espresso. That gives it such a different effect.


The Pointed Feathers die is retired, but Simon Says Stamp has another cool feathers die like: Feathers Craft. For this card I added an extra layer of cardstock and I have also stamped the edges of the card and doodled around on the second layer. This way it seem like the card has even more layers.




To join in all you need to do is make a project that fits this weeks challenge and you can be the winner of the $50 gift voucher that our amazing sponsor Simon Says Stamp offers. This prize will go to a random entry. So go over to the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge blog, let the DT members inspire you and join in the fun!
