Last week was the birthday of someone who has become a close friend over the last 3 months. We met originally at school as she is James's chemistry teacher but she moved onto our subdivision in December and we have been great friends since.
So for her birthday I I thought The Sweet Stamp Shop's Element set was very appropriate
I die cut a circle from a scalloped card blank and then used 2 Tonic circle nesting dies to make a frame to fit over this. I then lined the inside of the front of the card with blue card and stamped all the tiny word stamps randomly inside the circle.
I then colored some of the other elements and the little female scientist using my Spectrum Noir Markers - this was the perfect opportunity to use the fluorescent pens in my set as they have never been used!
After fussy cutting them all out I used foam squares to place these around the circle. I stamped the birthday sentiment directly onto the card and inked the edges with distress ink to balance the colors of the card and remove the plain white
