Wish Big!


I got a little inky with this birthday card!  I took a 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" piece of white cardstock and inked up each stripe of the My Creative Time Stripey Background Stamp with a different Tim Holtz Distress Ink (see links below).  After stamping it, I used one of the circle dies from MCT's Bunches of Fun Circles to cut out a circle.  I then used the same die to cut another circle from white cardstock and a smaller circle die to cut a circle within that one.  I used Spiced Marmalade distress ink to ink up the resulting ring shape and then nestled that and the smaller circle into my striped paper, adhering all of them to my card base.


I added some fun details with the latest My Creative Time release.  "BIG!" and the speech bubbles were cut with the Stitched Message Bubble Dies and the backings to the speech bubbles were made with the dies from Fun Speech Bubbles and inked with distress inks.
