So how do you go from 25 to 50? My sister's big birthday is coming up too! In the process of making my version of the card let's just say about 5 tries to get to one card. CAS for me takes 5 times as long as my distressed shabby chic/vintage look.
I ended up making three variation and I just popped a 50 over one of the 25's to use for my sister.
I created a second butterfly to cut out and add a layer.

One of my attempts I stamped the sentiment in Ranger Archival Magenta Hue and added a watercolor circle around the numbers. I didn't like the effect of the watercolor circles so I softened them with water and then I added the #50 over the top .
This one I stamped the sentiment crooked and had to keep cutting to cut it off. I tried layering the sentiment and it didn't work. I do like the black card base as it really pops.
I also had to make a boy's birthday card for this week so I pulled out my wild west stamps and created this:
I was playing with Tim Holtz Layering Stencil - Stars and sponging on the mix of browns with dye inks over an inky background. After it was done I decided to pair it with the Wild West Cowboy and the Verses Rubber Stamps Birthday stamp.
Have a fabulous Tuesday!
