Happy Birthday to J!

Help me wish J a very happy birthday!

I usually have a hard time coming up with a card for him, but this year was super easy since we just got back from a trip to Great Smoky Mountains national park! Say hello to the Blue Ridge card-way, made with the EBE Abstract Mountain die!

There are just two blues on here:

  • Cobalt blue at the top — this one has a subtle granulation and goes from light to midtone!
  • Then starting at the third mountain down I started mixing in some indanthrone blue to the cobalt, ending with pure indanthrone on the bottom mountain. Indanthrone blooms readily when you drop in clean water — love that!

To finish off the card, I used the moon die that comes with Abstract Mountain and then added an inlay moon with silver glitter paper. Then I stamped the sentiment, added some stars — and that was that!

J really liked it, yay!

  1. Perfect card for his birthday, Lisa, and I love your blues! Aren’t the Smokies something else? A favorite destination of mine, as they aren’t too far away to enjoy for us. So many lovely places there.

  2. I love this die, and your take on it is fabulous!
