Penny Black Simplicity: Sweet Birthday Card

Penny Black Simplicity: Sweet Birthday Card

Hi, crafty friends! Hope you are having a great start to your new week. Today I have a clean and simple card that I shared last month on the Penny Black Simplicity blog.


I created a winter birthday card using masking and inking technique. I adjusted the placement of girl’s left arm by stamping it seperately from her body. Then I connected her arm to the body by drawing with black pen.


This is how I made my card. ①Die cut a circle out of sticky note and place it over the card base. Stamp a little girl in black after masking off her left arm. ②Stamp the girl’s arm lowering from the original image and connect her arm and body using black pen. ③Stamp a cupcake after making off a candle and outline the image with black pen. ⑤Apply colors using blending tools and Distress inks. 5)Color the image using Copic markers. ⑥Stamp the candle and sentiment. Add some shimmer on the cupcake and earmuffs using glitter marker.


I really love how my card turned out. Hope you loved my creation and got some inspiration. That’s all for today. Happy crafting!
