Sketchy Cities America Birthday

by Laura

Hello! It's Laura here and today I have a fun birthday project to share with you featuring the Sketchy Cities America 2 Stamp Set as well as the Happy Birthday Die.

Altenew-Sketchy Cities BdayTo begin I embossed the gorgeous skyline image from Sketchy Cities America 2 with clear embossing powder. Then I used all four inks in the Sea Shore Oval set to blend in color over the embossed image.

Altenew-Sketchy Cities BdayFor the sentiment I used the Happy Birthday Die. I love the fun handwritten look to this sentiment and I think it pairs great overlapping the Sketchy Cities America 2 skyline. I die cut four of the sentiments with white cardstock and one with silver foil cardstock. I layered them using spray adhesive to make a thicker dimensional sentiment.

Altenew-Sketchy Cities BdayHere's a video to show you how I created my card.
