This is a fairly simple birthday card I made, using a few different techniques. Materials you will need:

Scoring board and bone folder

Card stock in 2 coordinating colors

White card stock  

Stamping ink in color of your choosing

Large background stamp

Happy Birthday stamp

Edge punch

Adhesive ribbon

Markers

Glue runner

Start by cutting and scoring your card stock to the desired card size, I chose 5 x 7 to fit in A7 sized envelopes.  Then edge punch what will be the front of the card, I used a lace edge punch.  I stamped my background image on a 4 x 6 piece of white card stock and then colored in the image with markers. I used a coordinating piece of adhesive ribbon along the left side, but washi tape will work as well.  Then I cut a coordinating rectangle of card stock 1.5 x 3 and layered my "Happy Birthday", stamped on white card stock to it. I then used dimensional dots to give it some depth when attached to the front of the card. I also used patterned scissors to cut around the "Happy Birhday" stamp to give it a nicer edge. Try this out for any occasion and set of stamps you love, happy crafting!
