Happy Birthday MDUC!

 Here comes my Birthday Card for 
Yes we are celebrating our three years birthday, and ofcourse with a suitable theme;)
HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
My card is again made with the lovely dies from Go Kreate. 
For the card I first fold a 15x30 cm paper in half. Then I lay the largest of the three dies on the paper. But where the paper fold is, I lay the die just a little over the paper. This way it won't cut the fold. 
I then have a 15x15 cm bazzill (vanilla), and a 15x15 cm pattern paper (here Pion Design). I cut both with the largest die. I use Sizzix Big Shot, but you can of course use Cuttlebug. (The dies are just as DooHickeys or Spellbinders.)
I then ink both paper edges with Walnut Stain (Distress Ink pad), fasten them together with a small tape bit. Then I sew around the edges with my sewing machine. That way I don't have to sew on the actually card base. 
The image Tilda with Balloon from the Magnolia-You are so Special 2011 Collection, is colored with Distress Ink, reinkers. 
On Tuesday evening I will show you a card where I have colored with the Distress Markers. I have bought a few of them, and it was fun to try. I use them almost like the Distress reinkers: I lay the colors around the edges of the image in small parts, and I blend out the colors with my paint brush (00 and 0).
It worked fine on my hot pressed The Langton 300g paper. Ok will tell you more on Tuesday:)

Gorgeous card as always. Perfectly coloured, amazing embellishments!! Thanks for sharing all the details on how you created the card. I cannot wait to see your card using distress markers. Was it easier to colour using the markers?

Hi Ivonne! Thank you:) No it was not easier to use the Markers, but maybe with some practice it will be. I felt like I had to be very careful when I put on the colors. And when I was it went better. I also felt that some of the colors were stronger in their colors (than the reinkers), like vintage photo and tattered rose. But I think that it depends much on how light your stroke is. But the good thing is that it is not as messy as with the reinkers. And the tip of both the brush and the fine tip are very easy to work with. And the colors are great:) I struggled a bit with the Black Soot though, not easy to blend in!

Hei, så utrolig flott kort. Takk for at du deler framgangsmåten med oss, dette skal jeg jammen prøve.... Lurte på om det Langton papiret er det samme akvarellpapiret du nevnte tidligere? Har prøvd å få tak i det her i Norge, men uten hell. Vet du hvor man kan få tak i det?
Klem Brita

Hei Brita! Tusen takk:) Ja det er det papiret jeg nevnte tidligere, som jeg fikk tips av Debbie Dolphin om:) Du finner det hos Tegnesenteret. Her er linken:http://nettbutikk.tegnesenteret.no/shop/default.asp?page=products.asp&pg=2710
Det er flere ulike størrelser å velge mellom. Jeg har det som måler 229x305mm.
Klem, Camilla
