Birthday card: Party hat

Party hat


A birthday card for my other half’s nephew. And a good excuse to expand my stash further by acquiring a set of the Tim Holtz blueprint stamps; I’ve liked this range since I first saw them, but this was the first time I could really justify (for low levels of justify) picking some up.

Inspired by:

After a quick search to get a feel for how people were using the blueprint stamps — mostly straight stamping mounted over a background paper or similar — I found this Simon Says Stamp blog post and liked the layering and the file-tab-style sentiment.
