You have a dilemma: you need a birthday card. You've been making every kind of card but a birthday card and your desk is an awful mess. You don't want to spend all day straightening up your mess, then sorting through your birthday stamps, finding the right papers and background stamps. The sun is shining, the birds are singing and you want to be outside enjoying it all.
Monday Mojo to the rescue! Take stock of what is already out....stamps, inks, supplies, tools and use those to make a one of a kind bright and cheerful birthday card. Here's how....
I selected a few fun stamps....
Then I started stamping a pattern on a fresh panel of white card stock cut to 5.5 x 4.25. I like things semi-random...gotta have my ducks in a row. You could very easily do something totally random and abstract as long as the colors and scale work together.
...then admire your handiwork and head back outside with a cold beverage....you'll have plenty of time to clean up tomorrow!
