Happy Birthday Card

My next new card uses a new to me craft item called chalk markers by Chalkola. They are a marker that you can use on any non porous surface and then wipe away with a wet cloth. I've been experimenting with them for a couple of weeks and have some great posts coming up talking about them. They have a Facebook page for you to check out. There are a bunch of different videos on the markers for you to see.

For this card I used the marker as my ink for two stamps. The first one is the present in the circle. It is a clear stamp by, I think, Fiskars. I took the marker and colored the ink onto it and stamped on white cardstock. Since I used the chalk marker on paper if you swipe the present the ink will come off. I did the same thing for the stars in the background, however I did first and second generation stamping to see how I would like it. Since the markers weren't intended to be used on paper and the image may smear this card will be a family card. lol. My thought was I took the time to stamp them out I better make them into a card. This is an 11 layer card - Crazy, I know, right.

The coral/pink paper is by Color-Aid and black and white cardstock by recollections. The circle punches are by EK Success. The other patterned paper is by Kaisercrafts. The happy die is by Clearly Besotted and the birthday die is by Papertrey Ink.

Thanks for looking. your stamps
