Circus Celebrations

Chris here and today I am excited to share this vintage looking Circus Celebration Birthday card!
When I created this I was inspired by the striped 7 gypsies paper - every time I looked at it and my Sin City Stamps Steampunk Circus Stamp Set all I could think of was a circus tent!!!!!!   So I decided to re-create a circus tent!

Supplies needed
2 sided Striped Patterned paper
Cream/Ivory Card stock
Archival Brown Ink
Colored ink pads
Colored markers
Water Brush
Foam Dimensional Tape

1. Start by cutting your cream cardstock as your card base and distress with your ink pad.

2. Stamp image from Sin City Stamps Steampunk Circus  in bottom center of card.

3. Color image in muted colors using markers and a water brush.

4. Cut 2 sided striped patterned paper slightly smaller than card base.
5. Cut a slit in the center of the paper, stopping about 1 inch from the top.
6. Attach foam dimensional tape on the front of striped paper as below.
7. Fold ends back and attached striped paper over stamped image.
8. Add ground base with water brush and markers.

9. Stamps the 'Happy Birthday Greeting' and cut into a banner shape then attach to the card.

10. Add the Jute/twine bow accent to finish off your card.

Hope you are inspired to get stamping! Please visit our Fan Page for more inspiration!

  2. Beautiful card and love how it looks like a tent
